Mynamar cyclone death toll may top 1,00,000
According to reports, the death toll in the Myanmar cyclone may top 100,000 and 95 per cent of the buildings have been destroyed in the delta area of Yangon.
Yangon suffered severe storm damage, with roofs ripped off buildings and electricity and water cut off. Some water has been restored and many homes depend on pumps. UN relief teams were in the country but were far from enough to deal with the scale of the problem.
