Odisha Cyclone of 1999

The cyclone that hit Odisha (formerly called Orissa) killed 9,803 people (official figure), though around 45,000 people are believed to be dead. The strength, course and nature of the 1999's cyclone was almost same as Phailin, which is raising concerns that Philing could be as devastating as the one on 1999.

See more information on 1999 cyclone.
