Heavy monsoon rains yesterday brought some sort of relief from heat in Dhaka but it caused widespread waterlogging in the capital as usual.
As there was a low number of vehicles on the roads due to the ongoing strict lockdown, no traffic jam was there in the city because of waterlogging, reports UNB.
The heavy showers that started around 11am caused waterlogging in areas like Green Road, Tejkunipara, Malibagh, Manik Mia Avenue, Satmasjid Road and Dhanmondi.
Those who had to come out of homes to buy essential goods or to meet other emergency causes were seen wading through ankle-to–knee deep water.
Officials at the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said 47mm of rain was recorded in Dhaka city from Sunday 6am to 3pm.
“In the past two days, there has been little rain across the country except in the regions like Dhaka, Chattogram and Rajshahi. It may continue for two to three days more,” said meteorologist Arif Hossain.
Meanwhile, the BMD in its website forecast that light to moderate rains/thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind are likely to occur at many places over Rangpur, Rajshahi, Mymensingh, Sylhet and Khulna divisions and at a few places over Dhaka, Barisal, and Chittagong divisions.
Moderately heavy to heavy falls are likely at isolated places over the country, said the BMD in its forecast for 24 hours starting from 9am yesterday.
