In a gesture of concern over the Bangladesh’s situation after Cyclone Mora, the Indian Navy has rescued 27 people in a key operation in Bangladesh, where the country has been hit hard by Cyclone Mora, shocking extensive destruction and leaving millions of people homeless behind. The Indian Navy spokesperson Captain D K Sharma said that the Indian Navy Ship Sumitra rescued 27 people who were found floating at sea over 100 miles away from Bangladesh’s city of Chittagong.

“INS Sumitra operating in the Northern Bay of Bengal rescued 27 survivors found adrift at sea approximately 100 miles south of Chittagong. These include ladies, children, and elderly people. Search and rescue for more survivors are drastically hampered due to prevailing rough weather in the area,” Sharma added.  Damaging more than a few houses, killed at least 6 people as Cyclone Mora made landfall in Bangladesh yesterday, the experts are struggling to evacuate over a half million people from the seaside ranges.

Due to Cyclone More, all the flights from Chittagong and the Cox’s Bazaar airports were suspended. No less than 2.5 million people in 10 districts are at the risk of falling in the way of a serious Cyclonic thunderstorm. Districts like Cox’s Bazar, Chittagong, Noakhali, Lakshmipur, Feni, Chandpur, Barguna, Patuakhali, Bhola, Barisal, and Pirojpur were at risk. The Bangladesh’s Meteorological Department had said that the brutal Cyclonic storm ‘Mora’ had moved towards Northward over North Bay and started crossing Cox’s Bazar – Chittagong coast at 6:00 AM and it’s likely to move in a northern direction ahead.
