According to the Met office, moderate to heavy rain across the country has been brought on by monsoons, and it is likely to continue till July 5.

Dhaka received 67mm of rainfall between 6:00am and noon yesterday while the highest rainfall during the same period was recorded 73mm in Kutubdia.

The ceaseless deluge that began the previous night turned much of the capital into a swamp, disrupting life and trade.
Commuters were the worst sufferers as traffic remained stuck for hours in long tailbacks.
