Khulna and adjoining southwestern coastal region of Bangladesh are expected to experience the peripheral effects of the very severe cyclonic storm “Fani” from Friday morning. By evening, the cyclone will reach southwestern districts of the country, said Met Office on Thursday.
“The severe cyclonic storm is likely to intensify further, move in a north-northeasterly direction, cross Odisha coast of India and then moved north-northeasterly direction further over Odisha-west Bengal coastal area, reach Khulna and adjoining southwestern part of Bangladesh by evening of 03 May 2019. Khulna and adjoining southwestern coastal region of Bangladesh will experience the peripheral effect of the very severe cyclonic storm “Fani” by the morning of 03 May 2019,” said Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) in its special bulletin this morning.
