Another man died while going to a shelter during a storm caused by Cyclone Remal. The incident occurred in Shyamnagar upazila of Satkhira district on Sunday evening.

The victim was identified as Shawkot Hossain Morol, 65. He was a resident of Napitkhali village under Gabura union of the upazila.

Masudul Alam, chairman of Gabura Union Parishad, said Shawkot was going to the shelter around 7:30pm on his bicycle. He slipped and fell on the road and died on the spot.

Locals suspected that Shawkot might have died from a heart attack as there were no injury marks on his body, added the chairman.

Earlier on Sunday afternoon, a 24-year-old youth was found dead, an hour after he was swept away in a tidal surge caused by Cyclone Remal in Patuakhali’s Kalapara upazila.

The deceased, Sharif, was on his way to a cyclone shelter with his sister and aunt.
