1989 Daulatpur-Saturia Tornado
As per the records of the World Meteorological Organization, the world’s single lethal tornado smacked the Manikganj district of Bangladesh on 26th April 1989. It is regarded as the priciest tornado to hit Bangladesh and the deadliest in history.
The furious tornado sliced a trail that was a mile wide and nearly 10 miles long. It engulfed whatever came its way within 6 square km. area. It ruined the towns of Daulatpur and Saturia. The high-density population residing in the poor construction areas further elevated the tornado’s intensity.
