China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

At least 10 peo­ple were killed when Cy­clone Var­dah slammed into the south­ern In­dian tech hub of Chen­nai, bring­ing down houses and cut­ting off the elec­tric­ity sup­ply, au­thor­i­ties said on Tues­day. Most were crushed by trees up­rooted in winds of up to 140 km/h, which also cut power across large swathes of south­ern In­dia on Mon­day. In­dia’s me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal de­part­ment said Var­dah forced the evac­u­a­tion of 18,000 peo­ple.
