River ports asked to hoist warning signal 1

River ports in some regions have been asked to hoist ‘warning signal No 1’ as temporary west or north-westerly gusty or squally wind is likely to hit the country.

West or north-westerly squalls may blow through places of Dhaka, Faridpur, Jashore, Kushtia, Khulna, Barishal, Patuakhali, Noakhali, Cumilla, Chattogram and Sylhet with a speed of 45-60 km per hour, the Met Office said Wednesday.

“The river ports there should hoist ‘riverine warning signal No 1’,” it said.

Rain or thundershowers is likely to occur at one or two places over Rajshahi, Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions in the next 24 hours commencing 10 am, said another bulletin.
