A massive thunderstorm swept over the Indian state of Manipur during the early morning hours of April 15, leaving at least 3 people dead and over 50 injured.
The worst affected were the districts of Bishnupur, Churachandpur and Kakching.
Powerful winds produced by the storm destroyed homes, school buildings and downed trees and power poles, leaving the entire state without power. The Nagaland Post said power supply resumed during the afternoon hours at several places, including Imphal.
