Violent storms that swept into the Bay of Bengal have killed at least 60 people in eastern India and Bangladesh.

Reports say thousands of people have been left homeless.

Indian officials say 31 deaths occurred in the eastern state of Andhra Pradesh, most of them due to drowning and collapsed houses.

In West Bengal state, a cyclone killed at least 15 people and injured 300 others in coastal villages. The storm destroyed hundreds of mud huts and toppled trees and electricity poles.

In Bangladesh, hundreds of fishermen went missing after they were caught in rough seas and strong winds in the Bay of Bengal. Three hundred to four hundred trawlers with people are still missing. Forty six dead bodies were recovered.

A naval vessel ran aground during the storm, leaving its commanding officer missing, but the crew of 40 was rescued.
