Maritime ports asked to hoist signal 1
Meanwhile, the Met Office on Monday asked the maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla, and Payra to hoist distant cautionary signal 1 due to depression formed in the Bay of Bengal.
The depression over west-central Bay and adjoining east-central bay moved west-northwestwards over the same area.
At 6am, it was centered about 1,086km southwest of Chittagong port, 1,046km southwest of Cox's Bazar port, 941km southwest of Mongla port, and 951km southwest of Payra port, said a Met Office bulletin.
It is likely to intensify further and move in a west/northwesterly direction.
Maximum sustained wind speed within 44kms of the depression centre is about 40kph rising to 50kph in gusts/squalls.
Sea will remain moderate near the depression centre.
All fishing boats and trawlers over the 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, the bulletin added.
