Alayung Thaksin

Myanmar, BURMA

Villagers board a jeep bound for the market town of Pyapon. Many are moving away from the worst affected areas following the cyclone, though the government is strictly controlling movement. At times it is forcing relocation to camps, at other times it is forbidding movement from villages. Many people died in this area, nearly all from drowning in the tidal surge, which came to a height of 4 metres in places. Cyclone Nargis struck Burma on 02/05/2008. Aye Yaw Gone village, near Pyapon, Ayeyarawaddy Division.
