Tropical storms lashed through southern Bangladesh, killing at least six people, injuring dozens and leaving several thousand villagers homeless, a television station reported Friday.
The storms struck late Thursday, leveling hundreds of mainly tin-roof houses in Bhola district, 104 kilometers (65 miles) south of the country's capital of Dhaka, ATN Bangla TV station reported.
Rescuers recovered six bodies buried under debris of collapsed houses early Friday, the station reported. Dozens of injured people were taken to a hospital, the report said without providing further details.
The storms knocked down many trees and electricity poles, plunging the affected areas into darkness and hampering immediate rescue work.
Several thousand people were left homeless in dozens of farming villages, the report said.
Government officials were not immediately available for comment.
Seasonal storms are common in Bangladesh, a tropical delta nation of 140 million people.
