Two people died on Friday as Cyclone Fani slammed into eastern India with winds gusting at speeds of up to 200 kilometres (125 miles) per hour, an official said.

"I can confirm two deaths for now. One old man in one of the shelters died because of (a) heart attack. Another person went out in the storm despite our warnings and died because a tree fell on him," Odisha state special relief commissioner Bishnupada Sethi told AFP.
