Super Cyclone Phailin batters east coast

Super Cyclone Phailin hit India's east coast Saturday night, killing at least five and sending roughly half a million people into emergency shelters. Meteorologists say Phailin could be worse than Hurricane Katrina, which devastated parts of the southern U.S. in 2005. By late Saturday night the cyclone packed winds up to 130 mph, making it the worst storm of its kind in the region in the last 14 years.
