Cyclone Nargis brought about the most exceedingly bad characteristic debacle in the written history of Myanmar amid ahead of schedule May 2008. The typhoon made landfall in Myanmar on Friday, 2 May 2008, sending a tempest surge 40 kilometers up the thickly populated Irrawaddy delta, creating calamitous devastation and no less than 138,000 fatalities. The Labutta Township alone was accounted for to have 80,000 dead, with around 10,000 more passings in Bogale. There were around 55,000 individuals absent and numerous different passings were found in different towns and regions, in spite of the fact that the Myanmar government's official loss of life might have been under-reported, and there have been charges that administration authorities quit upgrading the loss of life after 138,000 to minimize political aftermath. The dreaded 'second wave' of fatalities from illness and absence of help endeavors never emerged. Harm was evaluated at over K62,988,000,000 (US$10 billion), which made it the most harming typhoon ever recorded in this bowl.

Nargis created on 27 April in the focal region of Bay of Bengal. At first it followed gradually northwestward and, experiencing good conditions, it immediately reinforced. Dry air debilitated the violent wind on 29 April, however subsequent to starting a relentless eastbound movement Nargis quickly strengthened to accomplish crest winds of no less than 165 km/h (105 mph) on 2 May as indicated by IMD perceptions; the JTWC surveyed top winds of 217 km/h (135 mph), making it a frail Category 4 typhoon on the SSHS. The violent wind moved shorewards in the Ayeyarwady Division of Myanmar at top force and, in the wake of going close to the real city of Yangon (Rangoon), the tempest bit by bit debilitated until scattering close to the fringe of Myanmar and Thailand.

Nargis is the deadliest named twister in the North Indian Ocean Basin, and also the second deadliest named violent wind ever, behind Typhoon Nina of 1975. Counting anonymous tempests like the 1970 Bhola tornado, Nargis is the eighth deadliest violent wind ever, however a vulnerability between the passings brought on by Nargis and those created by different twisters (such as the 1991 Bangladesh typhoon), could put Nargis as seventh deadliest or higher, on the grounds that the definite loss of life is unverifiable. Nargis was the principal tropical violent wind to strike the nation since Cyclone Mala made landfall in 2006, which was marginally more grounded, however had a fundamentally bring down effect. As indicated by reports, Indian powers had cautioned Myanmar about the peril that Cyclone Nargis postured 48 hours before it hit the nation's coast.

Help endeavors were impeded for political reasons as Myanmar's military rulers at first opposed vast scale global guide. US President George W. Hedge said that an irate world ought to denounce the way Myanmar's military rulers were taking care of the result of such a disastrous violent wind. Myanmar's military junta at long last acknowledged guide a couple of days after India's solicitation was acknowledged.

The United Nations assessed that 1.50 million individuals were "extremely influenced" by this twister. Appraisals of the general population missing were 53,836, with 84,537 affirmed dead. Some NGOs evaluated that the last loss of life would be more than 100,000. No less than 10,000 individuals were accounted for to have died in the delta town of Bogale alone.

One guide laborer asserted that the loss of life from the typhoon and its fallout may achieve 300,000; if right, Nargis would be the second deadliest twister ever and the fifth deadliest characteristic catastrophe of the twentieth century, after the Yellow River surges, the 1976 Tangshan seismic tremor and the Bhola Cyclone in Bangladesh.

Since Myanmar's military pioneers did not number the full loss of life from Nargis (leaving the region soon after it hit), and the way that thousands more individuals were lost or washed out adrift, it was dreaded up to 1 million individuals may have passed on in this debacle. On the off chance that this turns out to be the situation, Nargis would be the deadliest violent wind ever recorded and the third deadliest normal fiasco recorded, behind the Yellow River surges of 1887 and 1931 in China. The last loss of life from Nargis was no less than 146,000, in light of the fact that there were 90,000 individuals affirmed dead at one point and 56,000 were missing. They were never discovered, so it was expected that these 56,000 individuals were executed. Accordingly, its loss of life would surpass that of the 1991 tempest and make it the deadliest since the 1970 tempest. It is presently imagined that a huge number of individuals will never be found after Nargis on the grounds that their bodies have rotted, been covered, or were washed out to ocean.

A huge number of structures were demolished; in the town of Labutta, in the Ayeyarwady Division, state TV reported that 75 percent of structures had caved in and 20 percent had their rooftops ripped off. One report showed that 95 percent of structures in the Irrawaddy Delta range were crushed. The Ministry of Religious Affairs expressed that 1,163 sanctuaries were pulverized in Ayeyarwady Division and 284 in Yangon Division.

The Burmese government formally pronounced five locales—Yangon, Ayeyarwady, Bago Divisions and Mon and Kayin States—as hazardous situations.

Nargis set numerous records for its loss of life and its harm. Likewise, when Nargis achieved Category 4 on the SSHS on 2 May, it denoted the main time that a Category 4 storm had shaped in this bowl for three back to back years: beginning with 2006's Mala, going into 2007 with Sidr and Gonu, and consummation with Nargis.

The definite loss of life from Nargis will probably never be known, yet it was in all probability one of the deadliest tropical typhoons in written history.
