(Updates with new death toll)

ADEN, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Winds and rain from the second rare cyclone to hit Yemen in two weeks have killed 13 people, including three children, on Yemen's Socotra island, the fisheries minister said on Tuesday.

Cyclone Megh slammed into Socotra on Sunday with category four hurricane-force winds, and arrived on the Yemeni mainland's southern shore near the port city of Aden on Tuesday.

Fisheries Minister Fahd Kafayen said that three fishermen were also missing on the island, according to his Facebook page.

The storm injured an estimated 60 people and damaged houses, the main power station and hospital on Socotra, the U.N. humanitarian office OCHA said.
