UNB, Dhaka:

The maritime ports of the country have been advised to hoist distant warning signal number two as cyclonic storm ‘Gulab’ over Northwest Bay and adjoining West-Central Bay moved westwards and now lies over the same area.

It was centred at 6 am on Sunday about 665 kms Southwest of Chattogram port, 630 kms Southwest of Cox’s Bazar port, 525 kms South of Mongla port and 530 kms south of Payra port, said a special bulleting of Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).

It is likely to move in a West-Northwesterly direction further.

Maximum sustained wind speed within 54 kms of the cyclone centre is about 62 KPH rising to 88 kph in gusts or squalls.

Sea will remain very rough near the cyclone centre.

All fishing boats and trawlers over north Bay and deep sea have been advised to remain close to the coast and proceed with caution.

They are also advised not to venture into the deep sea.
