Yangon Cyclone

This is terrible: Almost 4,000 people were killed and nearly 3,000 others are unaccounted for after a devastating cyclone in Myanmar, a state radio station said Monday.

The cyclone hit the biggest city in the country, Yangon. And a quote from a grocery store owner: "The government misled people. They could have warned us about the severity of the coming cyclone so we could be better prepared."

UPDATE: Most unfortunate, I think, is that the original death toll was just 351.
