River ports asked to hoist warning signal 2

River ports in some regions have been asked to hoist ‘warning signal No 2’ as temporary west or north-westerly squally wind is likely to hit the country.

West or north-westerly squalls may blow through places of Tangail, Mymensingh Dhaka, Cumilla, and Sylhet with the speed of 60-80 km per hour, the Met Office said Sunday.

“The river ports there should hoist ‘riverine warning signal No 2’,” it said in a bulletin.

Rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty or squally wind is likely to occur elsewhere over the country where riverports shall hoist cautionary signal No 1, the Met Office said.
