Myanmar: Report from Yangon

New Mandala received a report from a correspondent based in Yangon, Myanmar. An excerpt of the account: “The stories from the night of the cyclone that the villagers shared with me were gruesome. I was told how streets were turned into rivers through torrential rainfall and storm surges of over 10 feet…It is not only devastating that many lost all their property, but long term income generating opportunities have been drastically interrupted or altogether destroyed.”
