]>> Cyclone Vardah tearing into the Indian coast on Tuesday, killing at least four people and forcing tense of thousands to evacuate. Heavy rain and winds hitting nearly 90 miles an hour, uprooting trees, pulling down power lines, even flipping an oil truck. Flights at Chennai Airport are cancelled and trains are suspended.
Schools and colleges are closed. And officials are urging people not to venture outside. But in severely storm struck areas, tens of thousands have been huddling in safe centers to wait out the worst of it. Forecasters expect the storm to ease up in the next day or so, but the Navy says, it's on standby to help move people and deliver aid if Vardah takes a turn for the worse.
