The country’s four maritime ports have been asked to hoist local cautionary signal No. three as a deep convection is taking place over the North Bay of Bengal.

Squally weather may affect North Bay, adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh and the four maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra, according to a Met office bulletin.
