Over 400 fishermen swept into the sea last week by a storm in the Bay of Bengal have been rescued by a team led by the Burmese navy.
A depression over the Bay of Bengal is likely to intensify further into a cyclonic storm, however it is not moving towards the Burmese coastline, the DMH says.
One hundred and fifty people have been made homeless in Mingalardon Township, Rangoon, after a whirlwind swept through the neighbourhood on Monday morning.
Electricity poles, trees, billboards and rooftops were just some of the victims of strong winds and rain that swept through Rangoon.
Strong winds destroyed about 100 houses belonging to resettled villagers in the Pinlaung area of southern Shan State, about 100km northeast of Burma’s capital Naypyidaw.
Displaced residents start to pack up to return home after they were evacuated due to Cyclone Mahasen.
