Phone Lines Restored in Yangon (Rangoon)
Most houses in Rangoon are all brick and the walls are 1 to 3 feet thick and built to last back in the British days. The hardest hit area was in the surrounding suburbs and villages because the homes there are built on wood with bamboo stems due to poverty. They fared badly against 120mph wind and 12-ft waves.
