Si tratta del più violento ciclone da 20 anni a questa parte che si è abbattuto sugli Stati orientali indiani, con venti a 225 km/h. Sono state evacuate dalle autorità oltre 1,2 milioni di persone e per fortuna ancora non si registrano vittime o feriti. Il ciclone ha colpito soprattutto la città turistica di Puri, ma molte zone risultano allagate, migliaia di alberi sono stati sradicati, pali della luce spezzati, tetti scoperchiati e un numero imprecisato di case è stato distrutto. Fani si sta spostando in queste ore in direzione nordest, verso le coste del Bangladesh. (foto Ap)
