Cyclone Hits Myanmar

A power tropical cyclone hit Myanmar over the weekend, killing more than 350 people.
According to a New York Times article, the storm, Nargis, struck early saturday with powerful winds up to 120 mph.
"Five regions of the impoverished Southeast Asian country have been declared disaster zones," the article said.
Myanmar, formerly Burma, is a military ruled nation. The largest city, Yangon, was hit hardest.
Almost half of the people killed lived on an island off the coast of the city.
"By Sunday, many parts of the city were without electricity," another article on CNN.com said. "Phone connections were also down in most areas, making it difficult to assess the extent of the damage."
As pictures and reports come in, people are discovering more and more damage to the country.
Entire villages were destroyed.
