The weather bureau has issued an orange storm alert as the depression forming in the Bay of Bengal is moving towards Myanmar.
The depression over the east-central and southeast portions of the Bay of Bengal continues to retain its strength.
Over the past six hours the system has moved in a east-northeast direction at a speed of 8 kmph.
It is centered about (120)miles west-northwest of Coco-Island (Myanmar), (240)miles Southwest of Pathein (Myanmar), (320)miles Southwest of Yangon (Myanmar) and (190)miles Northwest of Port Blair(India).
Due to the depression, Nay Pyi Taw, Mandalay Region, Magway Region, Bago Region, Yangon Region, Ayeyawady Region, Taninthayi Region, Rakhine State, Kayin State and Mon State are expected to see heavy rainfall with thunder.

The department advised trawlers, vessels and ships off and along Myanmar coasts to take precautions.
