In Bangladesh mobile phones will be use to alert the population on natural disasters

In Bangladesh, at the end of August 2011, according to the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, the number of active mobile phones subscribers has reached the 80 million.
The wide distribution of cellular phones will be used from the upcoming year to inform the population about the risk of natural disasters, like floodings. The Disaster Management Bureau (DMB) will team up with the country’s largest mobile phone provider Grameen phone, and the state-run mobile phone company Teletalk, to provide early warnings for cyclones and floods to all 14 coastal districts.
