    Cyclone Mahasen - potential threat

    On May 16, cyclonic storm Mahasen struck southern Bangladesh, bringing heavy rains and winds up to 95 km/h (60 mph). Myanmar was spared much impact from the cyclone, since the storm took a more westerly track than anticipated then dissipated on 17 May. The storm's effects were limited to some rain and waves in northwestern areas, with 2 m (6.6 ft) waves reported in Maungdaw Township. Approximately 120,000 persons including IDPs from costal townships of Sittwe, Bhutidaung and Maungdaw were evacuated to safer and higher grounds in preparation for the cyclone.
