A long stretch of the Bay of Bengal coast was raked by high winds and storm-surge tides as Cyclone Akash moved ashore.

The storm initially struck western Myanmar (Burma), where several buildings were either damaged or destroyed by hurricane-force winds.

Akash later left three fishermen dead and 50 other people missing along the Bangladesh coast.

Remnants of the storm then caused flash flooding across a wide area of northern Myanmar and northern Thailand.
