The maritime port of Chattogram will resume operations on Sunday night while flight operations will restart at Shah Amanat International Airport on Monday morning after a suspension due to Cyclone Mocha.
The authorities decided to reopen the ports after the Met Office lowered the warning to a cautionary level from a great danger signal on Sunday evening as the cyclone weakened into a land deep depression.
The port’s Secretary Omor Faruk said they were ready to supply goods from the shed, but the ships would not be allowed to return to the jetty at night.
“Loading and unloading operations will resume when they are back from the outer anchorage with the tide early Monday morning.”
The seaport halted operations on Saturday morning, sending the docked ships to the outer anchorage after the storm signal was raised to a great danger level. The airport also grounded all flights at the time.
The airport’s Manager Group Captain Taslim Ahmed said they were preparing to resume flight operations at 6am on Monday.
