  • Description

    SEVENTY-FIVE PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND 500 INJURED WHEN A CYCLONE DEVASTATED THE SOUTHER PARTS OF JESSORE DISTRICT IN EAST PAKISTAN EARLIER THIS MONTH. FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LESS THAN A FORTNIGHT, THE SAVAGELY WHIRLING STORM LASHED THE AREA FOR MORE THAN THREE HOURS STRIPPING BRANCHES FROM TREES AND CORRUGATED IRON ROOFS FROM PEASANT HOUSES.

    WHEN THE STORM HAD BLOWN ITSELF OUT, TEAMS OF RELIEF WORKERS MOVED INTO THE WORST-HIT AREAS OF MAGHURA AND NARAIL TO PROVIDE FOOD AND CLOTHING FOR THE BEWILDERED SURVIVORS. AN IMMEDIATE TASK WAS TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST EPIDEMICS.
