Rain, thunderstorm likely to continue until Wednesday
The entire country, including capital Dhaka, will experience more rain and thunderstorms until Wednesday morning, says the Met office. Meteorologist Arif Hossain said the rain and storm will continue until 10am on Wednesday morning. Rain accompanied by gusty winds lashed the capital again on Monday morning after a break of several hours. The short-lived rainfall inundated roads in some areas including Malibagh, Mouchak, Siddhershawari, Dhanmondi, Farmgate, and Mirpur. The storms are packing wind speeds of 60-80km/h, he said. Three spells of rain in the capital on Sunday following a nor'wester earlier in the morning inundated many areas, causing trouble for commuters. Eighteen people were killed and several injured from lightning strikes in many districts on Sunday. Meanwhile, Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) suspended operations of all types of water vessels across the country. Launch and ferry services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route in the Padma river have been also suspended due to bad weather. Under the influence of severe thunderstorm activity, heavy (44mm-88mm) to very heavy (>89mm) rainfall with gusty/squally winds is likely to occur at certain places all over the country during the next 48hrs commencing 10:30am on Monday, said a Met office bulletin.
