Bangladesh maritime ports asked to lower cautionary signal

Maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to lower the cautionary signal raised due to Cyclone Hamoon.

Squally weather is unlikely over the maritime ports, North Bay and adjoining coastal areas of Bangladesh, said a latest bulletin of the Met Office.

All fishing boats and trawlers over the North Bay and adjoining area have been advised to proceed with caution till Wednesday evening.

The cyclonic storm Hamoon, over northeast Bay and adjoining area, moved northwestward and crossed the coast at 1:00am on Wednesday, weakening into a land deep depression near Satkania in Chattogram, said a latest bulletin of the Met Office.
