Rainfall causes waterlogging in Dhaka

Dhaka experienced heavy rainfall triggered by cyclone Remal, resulting in waterlogging in various parts of the city, news agency UN reported.

This situation has disrupted life and work for many individuals on the second workday of the week.

The Bangladesh Meteorological Department recorded 116 mm rains in nine hours till 3:00 pm on Monday.

Different areas including Uttara Airport to Kakoli, Mirpur, Shewrapara, Kazipara, Agargaon, Bijoy Sarani, Rampura, Badda, Shyamoli, Manik Mia Avenue, and Mouchak were inundated, causing suffering to the residents. 

Streets in those areas were flooded, with individuals seen wading through knee-deep water in some areas including Gabtoli to Mirpur Mazar Road.

School and office-goers faced the brunt of the situation as they struggled to reach their destinations amidst the heavy rain and strong winds. 

Besides, low-income groups such as day labourers remained idle due to the lack of work caused by the adverse weather conditions.

Despite the traffic moving slowly, the overall traffic situation in the city remained normal, said Abu Saleh Md Raihan, joint commissioner (traffic north) of DMP.

Pedestrians and commuters faced challenges due to flooded roads and sidewalks in the capital.
