Cyclone Mora hits Bangladesh

Cyclone Mora has hit Bangladesh, lashing the country's south-eastern coast with heavy rain and winds. The powerful storm made landfall on Tuesday morning between the fishing port of Cox's Bazar and the city of Chittagong, with winds of up to 117 km/h (73mph), Bangladesh's Meteorological Department said. Authorities have been moving more than one million people to shelters. Parts of India and Myanmar are also expected to be affected. May 30  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-40089409

It is well known that when a chart for a mundane event  brings a major planetary configuration to the angles at any place, that place is likely to feel the full effect of that configuration. At Chittagong, the Crescent Moon phase brings the Mars-Saturn opposition to an alignment with the horizon axis. Mars-Saturn is a combination that Ebertin associates with “violent or destructive energy”.

The Crescent Moon is placed amidst the stars of Gemini.  Diana Rosenberg links this area to storms and extreme barometric lows.

Incidentally, a chart for the exact Mars-Saturn opposition at Chittagong  has the aspect aligned with the meridian.
