Khulna’s local Meteorological official Amirul Azad said: "From 3am to 9am, our office recorded 114 millimeters of rain."

Chief planning officer of Khulna City Corporation (KCC) Abirul Azad said: "We have already started working on reducing water logging in Khulna city. We have identified the illegal occupants, and we are improving the drainage system of KDA Avenue. Only after we have completed these work, will the city dwellers get relief from water logging."
