At least 20 people have died in Bangladesh and India as Cyclone Bulbul ravaged parts of the coast on Saturday with winds of up to 75 miles per hour. The cyclone forced over 2 million people to evacuate their homes in Bangladesh. Meanwhile, in Australia, the island’s most populous state has declared a state of emergency as authorities warn of “catastrophic” fire risk. Dozens of fires are burning across New South Wales. Three people have died so far. Authorities are warning that this week “could be the most dangerous bush fire week this nation has ever seen.”
