Satellite Image of Cyclone Sidr, November 15, 2007

With the approach of Cyclone Sidr to the Bangladesh coast, officials were able to warn the public so that over 650,000 people could evacuate the path of destruction. This was inspite of a lack of proper infrastructure and undeveloped transportation network. The number of people who have died is over 3000, but this is far less than in the 1991 Bangladesh Cyclone when 140,000 people lost their lives.
