Boats and trawlers stationed at coastal areas have been asked to move carefully

The deep depression in the Bay of Bengal and adjoining areas has intensified and turned into cyclone Nivar. 

Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) issued a press release announcing the cyclone on Tuesday.

It may become more concentrated and move north-west. Boats and trawlers stationed at Chittagong, Mongla and Payra seaport and Cox’s Bazar have been asked to move carefully.

Nivar will hit the southern coast of India but could cause rain in the coastal areas of Bangladesh, BMD said.

Within 54km of the cyclone center, the maximum wind speed is 72km per hour. It is growing up to 8km in the form of gusty winds. The sea is rough near the center of the cyclone.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department, cyclone Nivar could intensify further to become a severe cyclone before making landfall around Puducherry by Wednesday evening.

“Bangladesh is not expected to be highly affected by the cyclone as it is not expected to make landfall in our country,” said Abdul Manna, meteorologist, BMD.

“However, it may cause temperatures to rise at night in the coastal areas of the country,” he added.
