The National Disaster Management Committee issued a warning on seven townships, including Sittway, Rakhine State, as red alert areas with a high risk of disaster on 12 May.
It is estimated that a very severe cyclonic storm, “Mocha,” may cross near Sittway, which is between Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, and Kyaukpyu, Myanmar, on 14 May 2023.
Cyclone Mocha will move inland with a wind speed of over 100 miles per hour in the next 48 hours, and there is a possibility that millions of people in some areas along the storm’s path will be affected by the storm.
According to the statement on the evening of 12 May, the areas with the highest risk of disaster due to the highest wind speed are Sittway, Kyaukpyu, Maungtaw, Rathedaung, Myebon, Pauktaw, and Manaung townships.
Departmental organizations, private organizations, entrepreneurs, and social organizations are cooperating to carry out the response measures for the people affected by the storm in a timely manner. — TWA/CT
