Cyclone Chapala Hits Yemen

A rare tropical cyclone is bearing down on the Yemeni mainland bringing hurricane-force winds, heavy rain and powerful waves. Online images showed water pouring through the streets of the southern coastal city of Mukalla that is controlled by Al-Qaeda. Correspondents say it is ill-equipped to deal with a disaster. Earlier, Cyclone Chapala hit the remote Yemeni island of Socotra, killing at least one person. Many residents there took shelter in schools and caves, BBC reported.
