PM orders all-out preparations to face Mora

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is now in Austria on a two-day official tour, has directed the administration to take all-out preparations to face the severe cyclonic storm, ‘Mora’, which is heading towards Bangladesh.
PM’s Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said the Prime Minister is keeping round-the-clock communication with Dhaka about necessary preparations of the government to face the storm.

He said Sheikh Hasina also directed the authorities concerned as well as officials and employees to discharge their respective duties properly in this regard.

The maritime ports of Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar, and five coastal districts have been advised to hoist great danger signal No 10 as severe cyclonic storm ‘Mora’ over the North Bay and adjoining east central bay may cross the Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar coast by Tuesday morning.

The coastal districts of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Noakhali, Laxmipur, Feni, Chandpur and their offshore islands and chars will come under the danger signal No 10, according to the latest Met office bulletin.

Besides, the maritime ports of Mongla and Payra have been advised to keep hoisted the danger signal number 8. The coastal districts of Bhola, Barguna, Patuakhali, Barisal, Pirojpur, Jhalakati, Bagherhat, Khulna, Satkhira and their offshore islands and char areas will come under the danger signal number 8.

The severe cyclonic storm, Mora, moved slightly northwards and lies over the same area.
It was centred at 9pm on Monday about 360 kms south off Chittagong port, 280 kms south off Cox’s Bazar port, 430 kms south-southeast off Mongla port and 350 kms south-southeast off Payra port.

It is likely to intensify further and move in a northerly direction and may cross the Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar coast by Tuesday morning.
