Published by ASEAN
On 2 and 3 May 2008, Cyclone Nargis swept in from the Bay of Bengal and made landfall in Myanmar’s Yangon and Ayeyarwady Divisions, resulting in large-scale loss of life and destruction of infrastructure, property and livelihoods. Approximately 140,000 people were killed or unaccounted for following the Cyclone. One third of the inhabitants of Ayeyarwady and Yangon Divisions—2.4 million people—were affected. The Cyclone struck 37 townships, covering an area of 23,500 square kilometres, a landmass slightly smaller than the country of Haiti. Globally, Cyclone Nargis was the eighth deadliest cyclone ever recorded and it was by far the worst natural disaster in Myanmar’s history.
