News: Cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh

Cyclone Sidr ripped through southern and central Bangladesh on Nov 15. It left a trail of destruction across 17 Bangladeshi districts. Official figures confirmed over 3,000 people died.
The humanitarian relief operation started shortly after the cyclone passed.
It could have been worse. Over the past decade, the country's early warning and preparedness systems have improved considerably. Officials evacuated some 3.2 million people who lived along the coastline in the days before Sidr hit, and stockpiled relief supplies and rescue equipment.
