Close to half a million people have been evacuated from their homes in eastern India due to a powerful cyclone.

The  cyclone has been named Phailin.

The storm, the strongest to hit India in more than a decade, has washed away tens of thousands of mud and thatched roof huts and sent seawater inland.

With some of the world’s warmest waters, the Indian Ocean is considered a cyclone hot spot. Some of the deadliest storms in recent history have come through the Bay of Bengal, including a 1999 cyclone that  killed 10,000 people.
