The numbers vary, but the story they tell is clear: The cyclone in Yemen has destroyed almost everything in its path.
And some residents say between the ongoing war and the abject poverty that dominates the nation, they are growing terrified of the future.
“All people here are very scared because the situation was already very bad due to the war and the control al-Qaida has on our city,” said Shehab Hazem, a 23-year-old fisherman from Mukalla.
“And now we have the cyclone, which has made it much worse.”
The U.N. refugee agency estimates more than 1 million people are impacted by the storm that is reported to have dumped years’ worth of rain on Yemen in a matter of days.
