Authorities began distributing rice, dried fruits, water pouches and tarpaulin sheets Thursday to the victims of a deadly cyclone that demolished ten of thousands of mud huts in northeastern India, killing at least 112 villagers.

Rescuers also cleared hundreds of uprooted trees blocking road access to the devastated region, said Vyasji, a Bihar state disaster management official. He uses one name , The Associated Press says.

Medical and food supplies have been rushed to the area after the cyclone struck overnight on Tuesday.
