It might take seven-to-eight hours to restore the site

The website of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department has crashed as a large number of netizens tried to view the page in the wake of the approaching Cyclone Fani — which will likely hit Bangladesh's coastal zones on Friday. 

The webpage became inaccessible on Thursday morning and displayed a "this site cannot be reached" sign.  

When contacted by phone, Meteorologist Omar Faruk told Dhaka Tribune: "The website crashed around 10am due to an internet traffic rush — as more people are trying to seek weather information."

He also said the Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL) is working to resolve the matter and said it might take seven-to-eight hours to restore the site.

When asked how the office is providing weather bulletins and forecast information, another meteorologist Md Abul Kalam Alif said: "Currently we are providing updated information through news media and email."

The coastal regions of Bangladesh are bracing for impact as the severe cyclonic storm Fani is likely to make landfall on Friday.

Maritime ports of Mongla and Payra have been advised to hoist danger signal no. seven as the massive storm nears.

The Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) has suspended all water transport services and operations, across the country, because of Cyclone Fani.
