Tornadoes kill at least three people, injuring about 85 others in Bangladesh

Tornadoes tore through southern Bangladesh, killing at least three people, injuring about 85 others and leaving several thousand homeless, a domestic news agency reported Tuesday.

The twisters swept through about 30 villages late Monday along the coast in the districts of Bhola and Bagherhat while most villagers were asleep, United News of Bangladesh reported.

At least 3,000 people were left homeless as the tornadoes flattened several hundred mostly mud-and straw huts, the report said, quoting unnamed government and rescue officials. Many trees were uprooted.

Rescuers found bodies of two men crushed under a collapsed house in Bagherhat district, about 140 kilometers (85 miles) south of national capital, Dhaka. Another man was found dead in neighboring Bhola district, the report said.

Officials were not immediately available for comments.

Storms and floods are common in Bangladesh, a tropical delta nation of 144 million people.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
