Bangladesh,Crime/Disaster/Accident,Indo-Pak/Pakistan, Sun, 12 May 2013 IANS

Dhaka, May 12 (IANS) Maritime ports in Bangladesh were Sunday advised to take adequate precautionary measures as cyclone Mahasen originating in the southeast Bay of Bengal, moved slightly towards the northwest.

"Depression which has already turned into cyclonic storm would likely move initially northwestwards during the next 36 hours and recurve thereafter northeastwards towards the Bangladesh-Myanmar coast," Xinhua cited the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) as saying in a special weather bulletin.

The bulletin said the cyclone was centred about 1,455 km south-southwest of Bangladesh's Chittagong seaport.

It said maximum sustained wind speed within 54 km of the storm centre has risen from 62 km per hour to 88 km per hour in gusts/squalls.

A BMD meteorologist said caution has been sounded for all ports and all fishing boats have been advised to remain close to the coast.

They were also advised not to venture into the deep sea.
