Dhaka, July 26: Continuous rain since Tuesday night continued for the fourth consecutive day today and battered Bangladesh, including Dhaka city, throwing life out of gear.
The central Met office has forecast of more rains for the next 24 hours and has warned of landslides occurring in the hilly regions throughout Bangladesh.
Bright side is, the squally weather over northern Bay of Bengal, that had prompted the hoisting of cautionary signal no. 3, has passed and the signal will be lowered.
In its latest report, the Met office recorded 12mm rain in Dhaka from 6:00am to 9:00am this morning. Until 6:00am in the last 24 hours, 30mm rain was recorded.
The downpour inundated several key areas of Dhaka city; hindering traffic. Road construction work has also led to small accidents around the city.
The lack of public transportation has also led to significant problems, with many arriving late to work due to the rain.
Anik, a private sector worker employed in Mohakhali said he left his Panthapath home in the morning but arrive at the office around 2:15pm.
The rain meant there were fewer forms of transport on the road and it had taken him a long time to find a ride, he said. In addition water logging had caused heavy traffic on his route, he said.
