U.N. officials on Wednesday urged the Myanmar government to allow aid workers to distribute relief goods throughout the country, following a cyclone that could result in the deaths of 100,000 people as conditions worsen, a U.S. diplomat said.

More than 1,000 people are reportedly dead after a cyclone hit the coast of Bangladesh Thursday night, leveling homes with 150 mph winds and powerful waves, according to the United News of Bangladesh and the Associated Press.
