The Chattogram seaport has resumed regular services after Cyclone Bulbul weakened into a land depression.

The Chattogram port, the busiest seaport in the country, shut down on Friday night. There were 18 ships at the jetty and 149 at the outer anchorage. Fifty-three ships were waiting to reach the jetty, says bdnews24.com.

The Meteorological Department raised the storm warning to danger signal No. 9 for the Chattogram port and to No. 10 for Mongla and Payra ports on Saturday.

“The port went back to normal now. All ships sent to the outer anchorage are brought back to the jetty. Some of the ships began to offload goods at the outer anchorage,” said Chattogram Port Secretary Omar Faruk.
