State Minister

Staff Correspondent: Around 10,000 houses in 419 unions of the country were damaged by cyclone Sitrang that lashed the coastal districts Monday night, said State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Md Enamur Rahman yesterday.
Sitrang did not turn into a severe cyclone and crossed the coastal area very quickly, the state minister said while talking to reporters at the Secretariat regarding the aftermath of the cyclone.
“We have been able to provide shelter to 10 lakh people in 6,925 cyclone shelters. The cyclone weakened quickly after hitting the coastal districts at 10pm,” said Enamur.
People have already left the shelters, he added. The state minister also said nine deaths have so far been reported after the cyclone hit the country.
Cyclone Sitrang completed its landfall and weakened to a tropical depression over Bangladesh early Tuesday, according to the Bangladesh Meteorological Department.
