Mora Makes Landfall in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is scrambling to evacuate nearly one million people from low-lying areas as a powerful tropical cyclone pounds the country’s southern coastline. The cyclone, dubbed Mora, made landfall early Tuesday morning between the cities of Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar and is heading north, CNN quoted authorities in the capital Dhaka as saying.  “More people were still waiting for evacuation,” said Abu Syed Mohammad Hashim, acting director general of the department. Authorities have also shut airports and ports in the regions expected to be worst hit. Khalid Mahmood, a director at Disaster Management Department, told CNN that no major casualties had been reported yet. Hashim said residents were seeking shelter in schools and other safe buildings in 17 coastal districts.  Officials have organized 3,800 relief centers ahead of the storm.
