Thousands of people remain water clogged in Shyamnagar Upazilla of Satkhira in the aftermath of Cyclone AILA's rampage through Bangladesh. Several thousand homes were washed away while numerous agricultural lands and crops were damaged by the tidal surges in low-lying coastal areas and on offshore islands in the Bay of Bengal. More than 500 shrimp farms were flooded by five to seven feet high tidal surges in the affected area. Apart from rendering thousands of people homeless and ruining crops, houses and fish-farms AILA has given rise to a severe crisis for food and pure drinking water. Satkhira, Bangladesh.
