Cyclone in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is a densely populated, low-lying, riverine, disaster prone area located in South Asia with about 724 kilometers coastal line with the Bay of Bengal. For its position in the tropical hemisphere, it has been the play ground of tropical cyclones and as a result, several cyclonic storms hit its coastal area every year, mainly in April-May and October-November carrying heavy rainfall which again causes heavy flood all over the country. So cyclonic storm and flood, these twice not only become the cause of loss of lives and wealth, but also cause a vast negative reaction on its national economic growth. As a result, Bangladesh can not uplift its economy significantly. During last two centuries, Bangladesh has faced more than 70 terrific cyclonic storms causing millions of people’s death and damage of billions of dollars’ wealth. During last half century Bangladesh has faced some unprecedented cyclonic storms that have attracted the whole world’s notice which are in 1970, 1991, 1997, 1998, 2007 and 2009. The recent terrific cyclonic storms like SIDR of 2007 and AILA of 2009 attracted world’s notice not only for its destructive nature, but also for a significant instance of global warming and its negative impact in the climate change. The areas flooded by high tidal surge of those cyclones are still under water today(after 3 years) as because of sea level water has been raised due to global warming and Bangladesh is the most victim of this global warning.
