Shipping vigilance urged for extreme weather in Bangladesh

March, April and May are the months of tornado, cyclone and Norwester. These may strike anywhere, any time without any warning whatsoever.
Masters have therefore been advised to remain alert at all times to face the threat. Ship’s main engine should be available at very short notice. CPA’s tug will remain on standby at all times to render assistance to vessels, informed a Chittagong Port Authority Notification dated March 14, 2023.
