Mohammad Hasanul Banna, in-charge of Koyra Meteorological Office, said that Ramal may hit Koyra in the evening or midnight. Rain has started. The cyclone may cross the area with sustained winds of 90-100 kilometers per hour.

However, the official feared that high tide waters on Sunday night could lead to tidal waves.

“We are more worried about the embankment than the storm. The embankment has been damaged in the past and it could break if the river water rises,” said Komlesh Kumar, vice-chairman of Koyra upazila.

Moshiul Abedin, deputy assistant engineer of Khulna Water Development Board, worried that if the water rises by 8-13 feet and the wind speed increases, it will be difficult to protect the embankment.
