Cyclone Yemyin moved in from the North Arabian Sea with winds up to 130km an hour, wreaking havoc along the coast of southern Balochistan, Pakistan.

“Around 15,000 to 20,000 people are left homeless in the province as heavy floods inundated dozens of villages,” spokesman for Balochistan government Razaq Bugti said.
Meanwhile, the poultry farmers association claimed that the tropical storm also killed more than one million chickens in various districts of Sindh and Balochistan provinces.
