SUNAMGANJ, Bangladesh (AP) -- An emergency official says a tropical storm has killed at least five people in Bangladesh.

Mozammel Haq, a local Disaster Management and Relief Ministry official, says the storm also leveled around 3,000 huts on Saturday. The damage was spread across four villages of the northeastern district of Sunamganj.

Pre-monsoon storms, accompanied by high winds and lightning, are common at this time of year in the South Asian country.
