Cyclone Mocha slams Bangladesh and Myanmar

Cyclone Mocha is lashing the coastlines of Bangladesh and Myanmar.

The cyclone was packing winds up to 195 km/h and heavy rain. There is a risk of landslides in the area.

Flooding and storm surge are a major concern for areas around the Bay of Bengal.

Ahead of the storm, authorities evacuated about 500,000 people.

Cyclone Mocha has disrupted power and communication systems. A video on Twitter indicated that a communication tower had blown over.

There were also reports of roofs being blown off houses and signs flying off buildings, and some buildings have collapsed.

A 14-year-old boy was killed by a falling tree while several people are reportedly trapped by flooding and rescue crews are unable to reach them.
