Cyclone uproots trees, floods streets in India
NEW DELHI— Parts of India’s southern coast were flooded Thursday after a cyclone slammed into its shores, triggering heavy rains, uprooting trees and cutting power lines.
Cyclone Nivar made landfall in Puducherry, a federal territory near the southern state of Tamil Nadu, with winds of up to 80 miles per hour, according to the India Meteorological Department. It said the storm was weakening as it moved north toward Karnataka state.
There were no immediate official reports of injuries.
