Monsoon puts Rohingya refugees in troubles

Rohingyas in refugee camps have become more vulnerable to natural disasters with the onset of the monsoon season. They are at risk of losing their lives in landslides, floods and cyclones.
The absence of a proper communication system hampers their movement while there is a grave danger of landslides for those who built houses on top of the hills and at the bottom. Cyclones are emerging as the biggest threat to the houses built with flimsy materials in the new camps.
Cox's Bazar is prone to cyclones which will cause severe damage to the camps, disaster preparedness experts believe. At least 200,000 people should be shifted out of the camps-away from cyclones and rains, said António Guterres, secretary general of the United Nations while visiting those camps.
