India: Cyclone Phailin Leaves Half a Million Stranded
Though Cyclone Phailin was far less deadly than it was projected to be, it still caused plenty of destruction with wind gusts of up to 167 mph and ocean storm surges of over 11 feet.

Most coastal residents were able to evacuate, but what they will return to will be a lot of destruction.

Since the storm hit the poverty-stricken east coast of India, many of the houses in that region are mud huts, unable to stand up to much less rain and wind than Cyclone Phailin dished out Saturday and Sunday.

This video captures the aftermath of the epic storm.
