Death toll in cyclone Bulbul goes up to 8 in Bangladesh

Normal life is slowly resuming as weather has improved in most parts of the country. Dhaka has a bright sunny Monday morning though it rained intermittently in some parts of the country Sunday night.

The process of assessment of damage has been started. Loss of cattle, household possession and other items of the affected people is being estimated.

In the Sundarbans area, senior officials of the Forest department said that the impact of the cyclone was reduced due to the Sundarbans forests which slowed down the ferocity of winds lashing the inner parts of the country.

Army, Navy, Coast guard, police personnel and large number of volunteers are engaged in providing relief to the affected people. Government had made arrangements for food, drinking water, medicine and other necessary items for the cyclone affected people in the coastal and other affected districts.

 More than 2 million people were evacuated to cyclone shelters prior to the cyclone entering Bangladesh on Saturday night.  Government said that the loss of life was minimised due to the proactive steps taken at evacuation of the people from these areas.
