Residents of Bangladesh readied themselves as Cyclone Bulbul barreled towards land at 70 miles per hour, making landfall early Saturday evening.
Nearly half a million people have evacuated with the help of authorities and volunteers. Catholic Relief Services—along with local partners—is working quickly to assess immediate needs as they arise.
Rohingya refugees remain especially vulnerable in the refugee camps. High winds and heavy rainfall can escalate their vulnerability due to their fragile living conditions.
