A deep depression has formed over West-Central Bay and adjoining areas


The maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla, and Payra have been asked by the Met office to keep distant cautionary signal number one hoisted—due to a deep depression over West-Central Bay and the adjoining East-Central Bay.

The deep depression over West-Central Bay and the adjoining East-central bay moved northwest-ward, over the same area. It was located, at 6am on Tuesday, about: 950 km southwest of Chittagong port, 890 km southwest of Cox's Bazar port, 870 km south-southwest of Mongla port, and 850 km south-southwest of Payra port.

It is likely to further intensify and move in a north or north-westerly direction, said a Met office bulletin.

Sustained wind speeds of 48 km in the deep depression’s centre are now about 50 kph rising to 60 kph in gusts/squalls, said the bulletin.

The sea will remain rough near the deep depression centre.

All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and the deep sea have been advised to take shelter immediately and remain in shelter till further notice.
