Cyclone Remal: Launch services suspended on all routes

The Shipping Ministry suspended launch services on all routes from 10pm on Sunday as the deep depression over east-central Bay and adjoining west-central Bay intensified into Cyclone Remal.

All launches of inland waterways from Dhaka River Ports will remain suspended until further notice, said Md. Jahangir Alam Khan, senior information officer of the ministry.

Earlier, the Met Office asked the Payra and Mongla maritime ports to hoist danger Signal 7 and danger Signal 6 for Coxs Bazar and Chattogram seaports.

Besides, the deep depression over east-central Bay and adjoining west-central Bay moved northwards, and intensified into a cyclonic storm "Remal" over northwest Bay and adjoining area on Saturday evening, according to Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).

State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Md Mohibur Rahman on Saturday said cyclonic storm Remal is projected to make landfall in the coastal regions of Satkhira in Khulna and Coxs Bazar in Chattogram by Sunday evening.

Almost 4,000 shelter centres have been prepared in the coastal districts, equipped with adequate dry food, he said while speaking at a press briefing held at the Secretariat.     — UNB
