The Great Bhola cyclone remains the deadliest tropical cyclone ever recorded and one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern times. Nearly 500,000 people lost their lives in the storm, primarily as a result of the storm surge that flooded much of the low-lying islands of the Ganges Delta. The cyclone formed over the central Bay of Bengal on 8th November ,1970 and traveled north, intensifying as it did so. It reached its peak with winds of 185 km/h (115 mph) on November 11, and made landfall on the coast of Bangladesh the following afternoon.
