Powerful Cyclone Grows East of India a Week After a Cyclone Killed at Least 140 in India’s West

HeadlineMay 24, 2021

A severe cyclone is brewing in the Bay of Bengal and is forecast to slam into northeast India Wednesday with 100-mile-per-hour winds. This comes just one week after another cyclone battered India’s western state of Gujarat as the most powerful storm to hit the region in two decades, killing at least 140 people. Over the weekend, authorities said 61 bodies had been recovered from a barge carrying oil workers that sank in the Arabian Sea last week.
