The maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to hoist local cautionary signal no three following a monsoon depression over the Bay of Bengal.
The monsoon depression over the North Bay and adjoining Bangladesh coast remained practically stationary over the same area. It was centred at 6am today (Tuesday) about-180 km west-southwest of Chittagong port, 200-km west-northwest of Cox's Bazar port, 75-km southeast of Mongla port and 10-km east of Payra port, said a special bulletin of the Met Office.
Under its influence squally weather may affect the North Bay, adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh and the maritime ports. It said the monsoon depression is likely to intensify further. Maximum sustained wind speed within 44 kms of the depression centre is about 40 kph rising to 50 kph in gusts/squalls. Sea will remain moderate near the depression centre.
All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay have been advised to remain in shelter until further notice. They are also advised not to venture to the deep sea.    ?UNB
