Bangladesh is a country regularly hit by climatic disasters. The Gulf of Bengal spawns tropical cyclones; these assemblies of clouds measure at least one hundred kilometres and have a diameter of over one thousand kilometres. They form over the warm sea (at least 26.5 Once formed, they spin at up to 300 km/h.
The Tdh teams anticipate an increase in water related diseases in the coming weeks. The immediate loss of employment, caused by the flooding of the fields in which it is presently impossible to work, will accentuate a short term lack of money to feed families and children. This year the fields will not produce the harvest expected. The problem of food security and child malnutrition will shoot up and create a crisis. Or not. The figures will show. And this increase, significant or only slight, will depend to a large extent on the capacity of resilience of these people, who are becoming ever more used to facing climatic disasters, as well as on the work of NGOs and the government to minimize the damage.
A country historically at the mercy of nature
Until Sidr in 2007, the number of deaths and homes wrecked was shocking. One knows that a cyclone can kill, destroy by wind force and have a violent impact on the environment and the people. For many years, the scientific world and NGOs have highlighted DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction). Numerous projects for prevention and preparation for disasters have been set up worldwide. Engineering measures, growing government awareness and the preparedness of the communities have doubtless made it possible to limit the dangers related to Mahasen. In addition, the particularity of Mahasen is that it brought relatively little wind but extremely heavy rain. Trees fallen on the roads are quickly cut up and the wood used for winter heating. The 100km/h wind spared the majority of the roofs, and all lives; few people were injured. The international and national media let up on tension, as at the end, it was only a small cyclone that did not cause much damage.
Mahasen is no more than a hundred kilometres away, the alert is at level 7 for the whole coast for Thursday morning. The country ports have been closed for three days. The scenario for Chittagong is confirmed. The NGOs get together in Dhaka at 10 o in torrential rain. A 2 to 3 ft. high tidal wave is announced. Telephones ring, opinions are contradictory. The 26 isles of Patuakhali are flooded. For the past 12 hours it has been pouring down with rain such as the people in the south rarely see. The roads, paths and courtyards of the houses are under water. Tdh office is flooded, the electricity is cut off, then the phone network. In the meantime, the senior staff races to the office, after having received notice from the coordinating bodies that the cyclone will be striking right on Patuakhali. Chittagong is spared. It is the whole region of the mouth of the Ganges, further to the west, that receives the brunt of Mahasen wrath: 20 hours of torrential rain that assails the fields, Louis Vuitton Belt Aaa Quality
The Tdh teams get ready
faster and faster, and soon all the international NGOs working in Bangladesh got moving, got together, launched joint systems for assessment, coordination, fundraising. The storm was expected to strike on Wednesday 15th or Thursday 16th. The guessing begins: the cyclone landfall, where the most damage will be done, where the teams should best be positioned to respond to the most urgent needs. Two days pass, Mahasen comes ever closer and its direction, predicted as veering slightly to the east, threatens Chittagong, the second largest city in Bangladesh. The weather forecasts are contradictory and also envisage the cyclone continuing in a straight line that would take it further to the west, to the districts of Borguna or Patuakhali. Now it may strike on Thursday evening or Friday morning.
Sunday, 12 May 2013. The Bangladeshi meteorological department announced that Mahasen, the first cyclone of the season, was heading towards the south coast of the country. Slowly but surely the eye of the storm attracted the clouds around its centre, revolved Hermes Belts Red
An account straight from the area
but not insignificant. School books, animals, garden vegetables, fruit trees, outdoor cooking ovens . . . and the rest. Their lives and their houses are saved, but what about their health?
houses, gardens, destroying the latrines, fishing nets, fruit trees, water sources, drowning the hens and ducks of the poorest people in the world.
A difficult situation for sanitation
Whilst the humans reassure themselves, deceptive nature works quietly. One metre of water covers the fields, and soon the plantations of sunflowers, lentils and wheat will start to rot, spreading a putrid stench in the air. The harvest is lost. The fields will have to dry out so that rice can be planted as quickly as possible. In the meantime, fishermen profit from the opportunity to set their nets in the fields that have become huge lakes. But material draining from the wrecked latrines and mixing with sources of water, contaminates. Having no means of purification, people have to continue using it for washing, cooking and for drinking, so ingesting bacteria.
Terre des hommes, working in Borguna since 2007, is worried and prepares. The staff anticipates and gets ready for possible relief action; the emergency teams leave on Wednesday morning with first aid material: what to use to make water drinkable, medicine, soap, etc. On Thursday afternoon, 49,000 volunteer workers from the government and the Red Crescent go through the villages to alert the people that a cyclone is on its way and they should get to shelter. The families quickly put together a parcel of essentials, Belt Gucci Original bury their kitchen utensils, remove the tethers from their cows and goats, and hasten to one of the 56 anti cyclone shelters in the area, not knowing how or if they will find their homes when they come back.
Mahasen passed over Bangladesh and weakened. The wind and rain calmed down, people came out of the anti cyclone shelters and went back to their villages to check the damage. On the whole, they were relieved to see their homes still standing, although in a mess. Their latrines are destroyed, but that is not their first priority. The water all around and inside their homes creates a lot of work. The losses are limited Hermes Belt Buckle Women
