Chittagong waterlogged in the aftermath of Cyclone

PV Desk : Incessant rains triggered by Cyclone Mora have left large swathes of Chittagong city inundated. Light rains started on Tuesday morning but turned heavy in the evening and continued through early Wednesday.

The weather office in Patenga has recorded 225.2mm rain in 24 hours since 9am Tuesday. Low-lying areas such as Sholoshohor, Agrabad, Halishohor, Chawkbazar, Bohoddarhat, Baklia and Arakan have gone under water.

People were seen wading through knee-deep and waist-deep water while some even took boats to commute. The port city slowed to a crawl after waterlogging made traffic congestion even worse.
