All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and deep sea have been advised to remain very close to the coast

Maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to lower distant warning signal number two but instead hoist local cautionary signal number three. 

The cyclonic storm “Bulbul” over the east-central bay and adjoining area moved slightly north-northwestwards over the same area at 12pm on Thursday, reports UNB. 

It was centered about 865 km south-southwest of Chittagong port, 795 km south-southwest of  Cox’s Bazar port, 830 km south of Mongla port and 790 km south of Payrapor, said the met office in a special weather bulletin.

It is likely to intensify further and move in a north-northwesterly direction. Under the peripheral influence of “Bulbul”, gusty/squally weather may affect the maritime ports, North Bay and coastal areas of Bangladesh.

The maximum sustained wind speed within 54 kms of the cyclone centre is about 62kph rising to 88kph in gusts or squalls. The sea will remain very rough near the cyclone centre, the met office added. 

All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and deep sea have been advised to remain very close to the coast and proceed with caution so that they can take shelter within a short notice.

They have also been advised not to venture into the deep sea.
