Even with Bijli weakened ahead of landfall, it did unleash some damage along the coast of southeastern Bangladesh. At least one boy was killed when an uprooted tree fell on him. A second person was also injured. Numerous trees and power lines were knocked down, and much of the coastal city of Chittagong remains without power.
Myanmar was struck by powerful Cyclone Nargis on May 2, 2008, resulting in the worst natural disaster in Myanmar's recorded history. Nargis struck the Irrawaddy Delta, an area farther south than where Bijli made landfall.
