BANGLADESH CYCLONE TAKES TOLL

More than 100 people were killed in the most powerful cyclone to hit Bangladesh in two decades; hundreds more are missing and feared drowned, officials said April 30. The storm on April 29, carried winds up to 145 miles per hour, and was the most severe in the 20-year history of Bangladesh, government officials say.

The hurricane-force winds were stronger than a 1970 cyclone that killed 100,000 people, weather officials say.

The storm lost much of its strength April 30 and turned into a land depression, meteorologists say.
