Paragraph Name : A Natural Disaster I have Experienced
Bangladesh is prone to natural disasters. These disasters are cyclone, tidal bore and flood. Global warming is the main cause of the frequency of these disasters. I experienced a cyclone in 2009. Then I was a child. So, I can remember a little of what had happened during that cyclone. From my memory, I can say that the cyclone caused a lot of damages. The wind was blowing so violently that our house was shivering severely. We were afraid that our house might be damaged. However, the house did not collapse but we could not sleep that night in fear. In the morning people came out of their house with anxieties. Many houses were damaged and many trees were uprooted. Branches of strongly rooted trees were broken down. Water reached our yard. Many coconuts which were separated from the cluster were floating on water. During that cyclone, many cattle died falling under collapsed house. Many people were killed at different places and many were lost. A lot of educational institutions and trees were damaged. The cyclone caused untold sufferings to people. In fact, we are helpless before the natural disasters. We cannot prevent them. We can only take some measures to lessen the sufferings of the victims and to minimise the loss of property. Our government can build up some permanent centers centers for shelter for the affected people living in the coastal areas.
