Mora-17 is a category 1 tropical cyclone moving north, over the Indian ocean (Bay of Bengal) at a speed of about 15 km/h. Tropical cyclone Mora-17 is predicted to approach the Chittagong Division, Bangladesh on 29 May 2017 and to make landfall early morning on Cox?S Bazar and Chittagong Districts on 30 May 2017 with a maximum sustainable wind speed of 150 km/h. The tropical cyclone is then expected to move northern to the Khagrachhari District and latter reach the Sylhet Division (30 May 2017).
Based on data of the observed and predicted tropical cyclone path, wind speeds from JRC (Warning 7 issued the 29th May 2017 at 09:00 UTC), and population data from WorldPop, UNITAR-UNOSAT conducted a population exposure analysis for Bangladesh.
Also included is an estimation of the population living within flood hazard zones from the last 25 years (GAR 2015) and exposed to winds of 60km/h and 90km/h speed in Bangladesh.
