Cyclone 'Gulab'
The country's seaports have been asked to issue warning signal number two as cyclone Gulab, which is located in the north-west Bay of Bengal and adjoining West-Central Bay of Bengal, moves further west.

According to a special bulletin issued by the Bangladesh Meteorological Department on Sunday morning, the cyclone was located about 665 km southwest of Chattogram seaport, 630 km southwest of Cox's Bazar seaport, 525 km south of Mongla seaport and 530 km south of Payra seaport at 8 am. . It may move further west/northwest.

Within 54 km of the cyclone center, the maximum wind speed is increasing to about 62 km in the form of gusts or gusty winds up to 88 km.

The sea is very rough near the center of the cyclone.

Fishing boats and trawlers stationed in the Bay of Bengal have been asked to proceed cautiously from near the coast until further notice. They have also been told not to wander in the deep sea.

Meteorological Md. Khandaker Hafizur Rahman said that 'Gulab' is not likely to have much impact on the coast of Bangladesh. He said that due to this, there may be rain in Chattogram, Barisal, and Khulna divisions along with gusty winds on the coast.
