Maritime ports asked to hoist signal 2

DHAKA, Dec 3, 2023 (BSS) - Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) has 
asked the maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox's Bazar, Mongla and Payra to 
hoist the distant warning signal number two until further notice as the 
cyclonic storm 'MICHAUNG' over the Southwest Bay and adjoining coastal areas 
moved north-westwards and is likely to intensify further.

"Maximum sustained wind speed within 54 km of the cyclone centre is about 62 
kph rising to 88 kph in gusts or squalls, said the BMD special weather 
bulletin here today.

Sea will remain rough near the deep 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 till further 
notice," it added.
