All types of operations including loading, unloading and delivery have resumed at Chittagong Port hours after cyclone Amphan hit the country's coastal areas yesterday and eventually weakened into a land depression.

Eight vessels, which were shifted from the jetties as safety measures ahead of approaching cyclone Amphan, have been brought back from outer anchorage between 10:30am and 1:30pm, our Chattogram correspondent reports, quoting Secretary of Chattogram Port Authority (CPA) Md Omar Faruk.

Loading and unloading activities at the port jetties and the lighterage of goods from bigger vessels at outer anchorage were suspended on Monday evening while goods delivery were also suspended by Tuesday evening due to the cyclone.

All 19 vessels from the berths and over 50 vessels from the outer anchorage were sent to the deep sea as security measures ahead of the approaching of Amphan.
