The Cyclone, Giri, has made landfall in the west coast of Myanmar causing large scale damage, according to a local resident.
There is yet no word from the authorities on damage or deaths.
State television said that the cyclone has struck the coast near the town of Kyaukphyu, with winds reaching 160 km per hour and could trigger a tidal surge of up to 12 feet in some areas on the Bay of Bengal coast.
Telephone contact with the area was interrupted but a resident of Kyaukphyu contacted by phone said the area had suffered badly. ". Many people are left homeless and several buildings have damaged”.
Coastal and delta regions in the Southeast Asian country are often hit by strong storms. More than 130,000 people were killed or went missing when Cyclone Nargis struck the Irrawaddy delta in May 2008.
