Local precautionery signal hoisted at Pamban port

Local precautionery signal number one has been hoisted at Pamban port cautioning the fishermen of the area about the cyclonic weather conditions prevailing in the Bay of Bengal and that they should not venture deep into the sea for the next few days.

The state fisheries department has also advised the fishermen of Rameshwaram, Dhanushkodi and Pamban not to venture out deep into Bay of Bengal and those doing so should return to their base at the earliest opportunity.

The deep depression formed in the North Bay of Bengal has turned into a cyclone on May 28th evening and cylone Mora is likely to cross the coast near Chittagong port in Bangladesh bringing heavy rains in north eastern states heralding the start of the South West monsoon.

Meanwhile the death toll from the devastating floods in Sri Lanka rose to 150 prompting the authorities to step up rescue and relief operations. Nearly half a million people have been displaced by the floods in south west part of the island.

Two Indian naval ships with relief materials arrived at Colombo port during the last two days and the third one is expected on May 29. Galle is the worst hit due to the floods.
