Geographical Characteristics and the Components at Risk of Tornado in Rural Bangladesh: A Case Study of Brahmanbaria Tornado

On 22 March 2013, a tornado swept over the Brahmanbaria and Akhura Sadar Upazila (sub-district) of Brahmanbaria district in Chittagong Division of Bangladesh and caused 35 deaths. There were also high levels of property damages. The aim of this paper is to present the geographical characteristics of Brahmanbaria tornado and the detail of damages it has done. Through this we will assess the components at risk of tornado in the context of rural Bangladesh. Research shows that, though small in nature and size, Brahmanbaria tornado was very much catastrophic – mainly due to the lack of awareness about this natural phenomenon.
