Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner Mohammad Mizanur Rahman told Prothom Alo that refugee camps No. 6, 7, 9 and 10 are most vulnerable to landslides, and that about 100,000 Rohingya live in these camps.

However, there will not be a need to evacuate everyone. He said that if it rains continuously, there may be a need to evacuate refugees and they have all the necessary preparations.

The BMD said 16 coastal districts along with their offshore islands and grazers are likely to be inundated by wind-driven waves 8 to 12 feet above astronomical tide as Severe Cyclonic Storm Ramal moved further northwards over the northwestern Bay of Bengal.

The districts are Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat, Pirojpur, Jhalakathi, Barguna, Barishal, Bhola, Patuakhali, Noakhali, Lakshmipur, Feni, Chandpur, Cumilla, Chattogram and Cox's Bazar, a special bulletin from the Met department said.

The seaports of Payra and Mongla have been directed to keep major danger signal number 10 raised, while Cox's Bazar and Chittagong ports have been directed to keep major danger signal number 9 raised.

Nine coastal districts – Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat, Pirojpur, Jhalakhati, Barguna, Barishal, Bhola and Patuakhali – will remain under major danger signal number 10.
