The service was suspended on Thursday morning because of Cyclonic storm Fani

Water transport across the country is likely to resume on Sunday morning after a two-day halt due to rough weather under the influence of cyclone Fani, said Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA).

BIWTA Joint Director, AKM Arif Uddin, said stormy winds still prevail, although cyclonic storm 'Fani' has weakened, reports UNB.

“So, using the water routes will not be safe today (Saturday). Operations might resume tomorrow (Sunday) from 6am,” he said.

All forms of water transport were suspended on Thursday morning when cyclonic storm Fani intensified.
