In the Eye of the Myanmar (Burma) Cyclone
Woman moves through debris in the devastated village of Nawpyando, which was inundated by Cyclone Nargis' storm surge that brought the level of water up in the village to 1.7 m (5 1/2 ft.), Irrawaddy River Delta, Myanmar (Burma). Had she not been huddled in the highest part of her family's house during the storm, she would have been swept away and drowned.The village is 2+ m (6 1/2 ft.) above river level.
