Survivors returned to their villages Wednesday to find them virtually wiped out by a cyclone that tore across western India, killing at least 415 people, injuring 1,200 and leaving thousands homeless. The toll from Tuesday's storm, the worst to hit India in 25 years, could rise. Many people remain missing, and relief workers have yet to reach remote villages.
