The maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox's Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to hoist local cautionary signal No 3 as the low over east-central bay and adjoining area intensified into a well-marked low over east-central bay and adjoining northeast bay.

It is likely to intensify further and move in a north/north-easterly direction, the Met Office released the information in a special weather bulletin on Tuesday.

Squally weather is likely to affect the maritime ports, north bay and adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh.

All fishing boats and trawlers over north bay have been advised to come close to the coast and proceed with caution till further notice.
