High winds batter Rohingya refugee shelters in World’s Largest Refugee Camp
By The Rohingya Post
At around 4:00 pm local time, strong winds suddenly struck the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh today.
The winds which lasted between 10 to 15 minutes, brought destructions of Rohingya refugee shelters in the camp.
The unusual natural phenomenon takes place amid the shutdown with strict social distancing practice to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in Bangladesh.
The winds brought thousands of refugees out of their shelters in order to keep hold of them from blowing away.
Despite their efforts, the winds battered many Rohingya refugee shelters, which would require immediate repairs.
Over a million Rohingya refugees are advised to stay at their shelters to prevent transmission of the coronavirus which continues spread across the world.
