Cyclone 'Giri' at a Standstill
Friday, 22 October 2010

The cyclone 'Giri' over the east central parts of the Bay of Bengal and its adjoining areas 6pm on Thursday remained stationary.

It was positioned about 505 kms south of Chittagong port, 415 kms south of Cox's Bazar port and 525 kms south-southeast of Mongla port, the Met Office said.

The Met Office also predicted that the depression might intensify and move in a northerly direction. It also asked the maritime ports of Chittagong and Cox's Bazaar to hoist local warning signal number four.

Mongla port, however, have been advised to keep hoisting local cautionary signal number 3 as a squally weather is expected to continue in the area.

The stormy weather might affect the maritime ports and coastal areas of Bangladesh, the weathermen added. So the fishing boats and trawlers in the North Bay and in deep sea have been advised to stay close to the shore and take shelter immediately and proceed with caution until further notice.
