Summary
Cyclones, also known as hurricanes, are said to take more lives in the Tropics than any other kind of natural disaster. In mid-November 1970, a massive cyclone swept in off the Bay of Bengal. It tore into the poverty-stricken country of Bangladesh (then known as East Pakistan) causing death and destruction on an unprecedented scale. Twenty-one years later, in April 1991, Bangladesh was hit by yet another great cyclone. Bangladesh is hit by at least once a year by a major cyclone. In May 2008, more than 140,000 people perished when Myanmar (previously known as Burma) was overwhelmed by a great cyclone. It would turn out to be Myanmar's worst-ever natural disaster. The country's repressive military government refused to accept any overseas help, leading to the accusation that it was turning a horrific natural disaster into a man-made catastrophe
