Indian navy recovers 22 bodies from barge that sank in storm

NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian navy ships have recovered 22 bodies of people who were aboard a barge that sank off Mumbai as a cyclone blew ashore this week. A navy spokesperson says the search is continuing for 55 more missing people. He says the three ships and helicopters involved in the search had rescued 184 people in rough seas with waves of up to seven meters (25 feet). Cyclone Tauktae, the most powerful storm to hit the region in more than two decades, packed sustained winds of up to 210 kilometers (130 miles) per hour when it came ashore in Gujarat state late Monday. The storm left more than 50 dead in Gujarat and Maharashtra states.
