Chattogram, Cox`s Bazar Ports asked to hoist danger signal 6

Bangladesh Meteorological Department has asked to hoist danger signal no 6 for Chattogram and Cox's Bazar ports due to cyclonic storm Remal in the Bay of Bengal.

The Met Office published the forecast on its website on Saturday night.

The deep depression over the Bay of Bengal turned into Cyclone Remal at 7:10 pm on Saturday, according to the Met office.

It is likely to intensify and move northwards further.

The cyclonic storm is likely to cross the Bangladesh coast as the highest category-1 severe cyclonic storm between Sunday midnight – between 11:00 pm on Sunday and 1:00 am on Monday – between Khepupara and Sagar Islands in West Bengal.
