Cyclone kills 54 in Bangladesh, India DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — A severe cyclone battered low-lying coastal areas of southern Bangladesh and eastern India, killing at least 54 people, injurin, dozens and razing hundreds and of news mud huts, officials reports said today. The casualty toll was expected to rise after reports arrived from hundreds of tiny islands and remote villages cut off after communication lines snapped during Tuesday's storm. "The casualty figure will go up for sure when we have full details of the calamity," said Food Minister Sardar Amjad Hossain. But Hossain added: "Many lives were saved this time because of large-scale evacuation of people from danger to safety zones. With the improvement of communications systems it was easy to move many people in a short time.'' At least 13 people died when the .cyclone lashed Calcutta and coastal areas of West Bengal state in eastern India, the United News of India news agency said. In Bangladesh, a boat caught in the storm on the river Teesta capsized near Bhairab, 45 miles northeast of Dhaka, and 20 of the 24 passengers were swept away and Killed, an official said. Abdul Muqtadir Ahmed, Deputy Commissioner for Khulna district in southwest Bangladesh, one of the areas hardest hit, said at least 21 people died there. Khulna district is about 110 miles southwest of Dhaka. He said nine people died when an electric power pole fell over a house in Khulna. Another nine people died when a house collapsed near Mongla port, near Khulna, Ahmed said. At least three others were killed in house collapses in the district. A senior government official in Dhaka said volunteers of the Red Crescent, the Moslem equivalent of the Red Cross, evacuated thousands of people before the storm hit. Announcements over public address systems blared every five minutes to warn residents of the storm's progress. Fishermen were advised to find a safe place to anchor their boats. Officials at the Bangladesh metereological office said the coastal districts of Patuakhali, Barguna, Barisal, Bhola, Bagerhat and Satkhira faced the brunt of the storm. "Extensive damage has been done to the crop ready for harvesting. Most mud and straw houses and tin shed offices and school buildings have been leveled by the storm," said Ahmed, contacted by phone from Dhaka. The port city of Chittagong, about 130 miles southwest of Dhaka, was battered by strong winds and rain. Dhaka, a city of 6 million, was hit by winds up to 75 mph, causing extensive damage to power and telephone lines. The power outage disrupted the city's water distribution. An official at the meteorological office said the storm weakened as it crossed Bangladesh and the northeastern districts of India. Southern Bangladesh is barely above sea level, and there are hundreds of islands, some little more than sandbars. At least 500,000 people died when a cyclone struck the area in 1970, and at least 10,000 were swept away in a 1985 cyclone.
