EAST GODAVARI, India (Reuter) - A brutal cyclone that struck the southeastern coast of India may have killed more than 2,000 people, twice as many as previously thought, local reports said on Sunday.

The Asian Age newspaper reported that more that 2,000 inhabitants of fishing villages were feared to have died in the devastating winds, rain and tidal waves that lashed the coast four days ago.

A statement issued on Sunday by V. Veera Raju, president of a local fishermen's organisation, also said 2,000 men and 150 boats were missing.
