Emergencies: Bangladesh: At least 22 dead after tropical storm "Sitrang"

At least 22 people have died as a result of tropical storm Sitrang in Bangladesh. They died on Tuesday night, among other things because trees fell on them or their houses, as an employee of the local disaster control authority told the German Press Agency. The storm flooded fields and other areas, uprooted trees, and downed power poles.

Analysis of the damage is still ongoing. But according to initial estimates, more than 10,000 houses and 6,000 hectares of cropland have been destroyed and almost 1,000 fishing farms have been washed away. According to the information, almost eight million people will initially remain without electricity due to damaged power poles.

Before the storm, officials had brought more than a million residents of coastal areas to safety.
