Cyclone ROANU: 75,000 Houses Destroyed, 200,000 Displaced

“It looks as if the entire area has been flattened by a bulldozer.”

Cyclone ROANU brought strong winds, heavy rains and tidal surges when it made landfall along the coast of Bangladesh. It is estimated that 75,000 houses were destroyed and more than 200,000 people were left homeless. Strong winds of up to 90-km per hour wreaked havoc in the coastal areas, leaving widespread devastation in their wake.

“It looks as if the entire area has been flattened by a bulldozer. None of the tin or thatch-roofed houses in the area are left standing,” said a member of the National Disaster Response Team of Bangladesh Red Crescent Society.

“I used to earn around 300 to 350 Bangladeshi Taka (4.00 – 4.50 US Dollars) per day. My family lived on that income. I don’t have any savings. The storm destroyed my stock and there is no one left in the village who can buy anything,” said a villager.

M6.2 Quake Strikes S of Mataram, Indonesia

Centered at 11.466°S, 116.234°E the event occurred at a depth of 29.9 km (18.6 mi), reported USGS/EHP.

The event occurred directly south of Segara Anak, a crater lake contained within Mt Rinjani, located on the Lombok Island. Segara Anak is the remnant of Mount Samalas, a 4,200-meter volcano that exploded in 1257 AD, shooting about 350 cubic kilometers of ejecta into the atmosphere [that’s about twice the amount of ejecta from Mt. Tambora explosion in 1815 .] The explosion, believed to be a VEI-7, was one of the largest eruptions over the last seven or so thousand years, and was possibly responsible for triggering the Little Ice Age, according to a study.
