Relief workers evacuated about 500,000 people Friday from coastal villages likely to be hit by an approaching cyclone. The storm, due to hit southeast Bangladesh today, could be as strong as the April, 1991, cyclone that killed about 131,000 people in the same region. Volunteers and rescue officials with megaphones moved from village to village urging people to leave. They were authorized to use force if needed, but memories of last year's disaster probably were the best persuader.
