Cyclone Hudhud: Do’s and Don’ts


  • Check houses, secure loose tiles by cementing wherever necessary, repair doors and windows.
  • Check the area around the house. Remove dead or dying trees, anchor removable objects like lumber piles, loose bricks, garbage cans, sign-boards, loose zinc sheets etc.
  • Keep some wooden boards ready so that glass windows can be boarded.
  • If you do not have wooden boards handy, paste paper strips on glasses to prevent splinters flying into the house.
  • Keep a hurricane Lantern filled with kerosene, flash light and enough dry cells and keep them handy.
  • Promptly demolish condemned buildings.
  • Those who have radio sets should ensure that the radio is fully serviceable. In the case of transistors an extra set of batteries should be kept handy.
  • Keep your radio on and listen to latest weather warnings and advisories from the nearest AIR station. Pass the information to others.
  • Pass only the official information you have got from the radio to others.
  • Get away from low lying beaches or other locations which may be swept by high tides or storm waves. Leave sufficiently early before your way to high ground gets flooded. Do not delay and run the risk of being marooned.
  • If your house is out of danger from high tides and flooding from the river, and it is well built, it is then probably the best place. However, please act promptly if asked to evacuate.
  • Be alert for high water in areas where streams of rivers may flood due to heavy rains.
  • Get extra food, especially things which can be eaten without cooking or with very little preparation. Store extra drinking water in suitably covered vessel.
  • If you are in one of the evacuation areas, move your valuable articles to upper floors to minimise flood damage
  • Check on everything that might blow away or be torn loose. Kerosene tins, cans, agricultural implements, garden tools, road signs and other objects become weapon of destruction in strong winds. Remove them and store them in a covered room.
  • Be sure that a window or door can be opened on the lee side of the house i.e. the side opposite the one facing the wind.
  • Make provisions for children and adults requiring special diets.
  • If the centre of’ ‘eye’ of the storm passes directly over your place, there will be a lull in the wind and rain, lasting for half an hour or more. During this period stay in safe place. Make emergency repairs during the lull period if necessary, but remember that strong wind will return suddenly from the opposite direction, frequently with even greater violence.
  • Be calm. Your ability to meet emergency will inspire and help others.
  • You should remain in shelters until informed by those in charge that you may return home.
  • Any loose and dangling wire from the lamp post should be strictly avoided.
  • People should keep away from disaster areas unless you are required to assist.
  • Anti-social elements should be prevented from doing mischief and reported to the police.
  • Cars, buses, lorries and carts should be driven carefully.
  • The houses and dwellings should be cleared of debris
  • The losses should be reported to the appropriate authorities.
  • Relatives should be promptly informed about the safety of persons in the disaster area.


  • Avoid being misled by rumours.
  • Don’t leave shelters until informed by the rescue personals.
  • Don’t leave the safer place during lull, however minor repairs can be carried out.
  • Don’t touch the loose and dangling wire from lamp post, it may have electric current.

Mahasen, the cyclonic storm brewing over the Bay of Bengal, is 1200 km from Bangladesh east coast and more than 1,000 km from India’s eastern coast, but its outer reaches could bring rain and squalls to places as far away as Dhaka in the next two or three days, according to the forecast of the meteorological centre.

The cyclone ‘MAHASEN’, which developed on Saturday morning, is likely to intensify into a ‘severe cyclonic storm’ in the next 24 hours, according to a bulletin from the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).

The impact of the emerging cyclone, coupled with pre-monsoon thundershowers, brought heavy rainfall along with severe thunder and lightning to several parts of Bangladesh and India which will continue till Thursday, May 16.

Month of May is always known as a ‘cyclone month’ and ‘Mahasen’ is the first cyclone this season, generally two or three cyclone passes through the Indian Ocean or Bay of Bengal at this time.

On May 13, the cyclone ‘MAHASEN’ is heading more northwards, but might change its trajectory in the next 36 hours and move towards the north-east Bangladesh-Myanmar coast, according to the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).

Maritime ports in Bangladesh have been alerted and advised to take adequate precautionary measures as cyclone Mahasen originated in the southeast Bay of Bengal moved slightly towards the northwest Sunday.

“Depression which already turned into cyclonic storm would likely move initially northwestwards during the next 36 hours and recurve thereafter northeastwards towards the Bangladesh-Myanmar coast,” said a meteorologist of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) which Sunday issued a special weather bulletin.

The BMD special bulletin said the cyclone was centered about 1, 300 km south-southwest of Bangladesh’s premier Chittagong seaport, some 242 km southeast of capital Dhaka, 1,230 km south-southwest of Cox’s Bazar seaport, about 391 km southeast of Dhaka, and 1,220 km south of Mongla port, about 178 km south of Dhaka.

It said maximum sustained wind speed within 54 km of the storm center has risen from 62 kph to 88 kph in gusts/squalls.

It said under the cyclone’s influence, squally weather may affect north bay, adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh and the maritime ports.

The meteorologist said cautionary signal No. 4 in a scale of 10 has been sounded for all ports when all fishing boats and trawlers over the north bay have been advised to remain close to the coast and proceed with caution till further notice.

They are also advised not to venture into the deep sea.

Sources say the South Asian country’s government has already asked its local administrations to remain alert so that evacuation of thousands of people from Bangladesh’s coastlines can be done in a short notice in an emergency situation.
