At Thursday 7.30 pm local time, the biggest cyclone in the 50 years history of the country, strikes the southern coast of Bangladesh. Nearly 1200 people is reported to dead so far. Thousands others are injured.

Electricity is cut-off in the whole country, so all the communication in the whole country is cut-off. At the airport, all the flights were postponed for 11 hours. The whole country is under black-out. Even emergency surgery is stopped for the shortage of light. Petrol pumps and the filling stations are turned off for the shortage of electricity. Supply of water also stopped in the city. Also there is shortage of candal. At the city area people living in tension without any news of the victims among the relatives in the remote part of the country.

Thousands of people is living under the open sky with no food, who need immediate help. Here are some links of the details news:

Personally I am fine, as I live in the capital city where cyclone was not so strong. But last 2 days no charge in the mobile phone, couldn’t take shower, and living in the light of candle at night. Just before an hour, electricity supply restored..a great news..hope everything will be all right now.

Kapalic, We will remember your country in our prayers. So many people have lost family members and their homes. Father God, we ask you to send help and relief to the people of Bangladesh who need it most. In the mighty name of Isa al-Masih I pray.
