Cyclone Yaas: Country’s maritime ports asked to hoist signal no 3

During the passage of the cyclonic storm Yaas, Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat, Pirojpur, Barguna, Patuakhali, Barishal, Bhola, Noakhali, Laxmipur, Feni, Chandpur and Chattogram districts and their offshore islands and shoals  may experience wind speed of up to 80-100 kph in gusts or squalls with heavy to very heavy falls.  

As a result, the maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to keep hoisting distant warning signal number three.

It is learned that the coastal districts may face heavy rains and flooding during the passage of Cyclone Yaas as the “very severe” storm in the Bay of Bengal dashes towards India. 

Bangladesh Meteorological Department informed on Tuesday that the storm over northwest bay was likely to move further northwestwards and cross North Odisha-West Bengal coasts by Wednesday noon.
