    Background: Relief supplies have reached the Amreli district of northwest India, one of the areas worst affected in cyclonic storms on November 8. At least 136 people are known to have died, but he final death toll will not be known until contact has been made with remote water-logged villages. The survivors, who have been gathering their belongings among the debris, face the bleak prospect of homeless and loss of their livelihood. Over 3,000 cattle were killed and communications and power suppliers severely disrupted. The relief, mainly in the form of food and grain, is being provided by the government and private agencies.
