Patuakhali Correspondent: It has been raining heavily in Patuakhali since morning. The sky is overcast. The Bay of Bengal adjacent to Kuakata is becoming quite turbulent. The water level of rivers has also increased a bit. The weather forecast on Wednesday (June 1) said that strong winds could blow through the coastal area at any time. Therefore, all the seaports of the country, including Patuakhali Pigeon, have been given the local warning signal number 3. All fishing trawlers have been told to stay safe in the deep sea. However, the district fisheries department said that most of the trawlers are safe as there is a ban on fishing in the sea.
Masud Rana, officer-in-charge of the Patuakhali District Meteorological Office, said rains could increase along the coast and the trend could continue for several more days.
