Bangladesh Meteorological Department on Monday said that the cyclonic storm ‘Gulab’ has weakened into a Deep Depression and is likely to move in a west-northwesterly direction and weaken gradually.

"The cyclonic storm ‘Gulab’ over the northwest bay and adjoining west-central bay crossed North Andhra Pradesh - South Odisha coast of India at midnight last night (26 September 2021) and lies over north Andhra Pradesh and adjoining south Odisha as a deep depression," said a Met Office Special Weather Bulletin issued at 6:00 am today.

It is likely to move in a west-northwesterly direction and weaken gradually, the Bulletin added.  

Meanwhile, maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to lower distant warning signal number two.

All fishing boats and trawllers over north bay have been advised to proceed with caution till afternoon today.
