The LikeTelevision™ History channel proudly presents, This Day In History - November 13! November 13, 1970 - a Massive Typhoon his Bangladesh. A colossal 20-foot tidal wave strikes the shores of the Ganges Delta on November 13, 1970, wreaking lethal damage on the people of East Pakistan. A 120-mile per hour cyclone spurred the tidal wave that washed over 100 islands near the coast. The island of Bolla took the brunt of the storm with an estimated 100,000 dead. An estimated total of 150,000 dead makes this the century's largest disaster by water. The Ganges Delta had suffered many furious storms, but this is the worst natural disaster in the history of the region. Damage would however been even greater had not an extensive system of dikes been established in the years before, to reduce the flooding that has long plagued the shores of East Pakistan.
