Cyclone Shelter Management for Earthquake Hazard (Tsunami) and Storm Surge Preparedness

The existing cyclone shelters in the country are strong enough to withstand cyclones and associated storm surges, tsunamis, and earthquakes. This is the finding of the 'Update available information for cyclone shelters management for earthquake hazard (tsunami) and storm surge preparedness', carried out by CEGIS for the Comprehensive Disaster Management Program (CDMP). An evacuation route map for all settlements of the coastal area has also been developed under the study. Furthermore, a guideline has been prepared on the construction, management and maintenance of new cyclone shelters, and maintenance of the existing shelters that are still usable.
