INDIA STRUCK BY CYCLONE

Three dead, more than million people evacuated

Deadly Cyclone Fani made landfall on India's east coast Friday morning, local time, as the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane.

At least three fatalities have been reported, according to the Times of India.

"Extensive" damage has been reported in the city of Puri, according to Reuters. Officials had been concerned about the welfare of the city's 858-year-old Jagannath temple during Fani's onslaught, according to BBC News.

At landfall, Fani was classified as an extremely severe cyclonic storm with winds of 180-190 km/h (112-118 mph) with gusts to 200 km/h (124 mph), which is equal to a Category 3 hurricane in the Atlantic or East Pacific oceans.

It has since been downgraded to a very severe cyclonic storm and is expected to further weaken over the coming hours as the system remains over land. However, dangerous impacts still persist.

Fani is the strongest cyclone this early in the year in the North Indian Ocean since Cyclone Nargis in 2008, according to Phil Klotzbach of Colorado State University.

Impacts from the storm are being felt as far away as Mt. Everest. The Associated Press reported some mountaineers and Sherpa guides were descending to lower camps as weather worsened at higher elevations. Nepal's government issued a warning for heavy snowfall in higher mountain areas while rain and storms were expected in lower elevations.

Over one million people were evacuated ahead of the cyclone's strike on the eastern India coastline.
