In Bangladesh, the authorities evacuated over five lakh people from its southwestern districts as cyclonic storm 'Fani' is drawing closer and is likely to hit the country late tonight. 

Bangladesh Met office spokesman Omar Faruque said the cyclone is likely to enter Bangladesh through Khulna coastlines and will take the entire night to cross the country.

Bangladesh's skyline turned dark in many parts of the country since noon as 'Fani' started approaching after ravaging India's eastern coastlines.

Faruque said the impact of the approaching cyclone caused downpour in some parts of the country and the intensity of the rainfall is expected to increase. 

Bangladesh's disaster management minister Enamur Rahman told reporters that the government was fully prepared to face the cyclone. He further said that army, navy, coastguards and other agencies are ready to be called out for disaster operation.
