Nine coastal districts of Bhola, Barguna, Patuakhali, Barishal, Pirojpur, Jhalakathi, Bagherhat, Khulna, and Satkhira and their offshore islands and chars were identified as risky for the cyclone, he added.

Char and low-lying areas of Chattogram, Noakhali, Laxmipur and Feni and Chandpur are also under threat, the meteorologist added.
