WESTPORT - Westport-based Save the Children is sending aid to India after a tropical storm ravaged the eastern coast of the country.

Shoppers at an Indian food market in the area say that before the cyclone hit, they were praying for the people back home. Now that the storm has lost strength they say community groups are working to send aid.

Save the Children, which is based in southwestern Connecticut, says there's a tremendous need for food because of crop damage from the storm.
