Adverse weather conditions have interrupted launch service from Dhaka to the southern parts of Bangladesh.
All water transport service from Dhaka's Sadarghat was halted from 8:28am to 9:42am and 11:50am to 1:00pm due to dangerous weather conditions, said Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Association Inspector Dinesh Kumar Saha. Dhaka experienced about three hours of medium to heavy rain on Sunday morning after it was hit by a storm. Heavy rain was also reported in various other districts. The Meteorological Department had previously forecast storm and rain in the Rajshahi, Pabna, Bogra, Tangail, Mymensingh, Jessore, Kushtia, Faridpur, Madaripur, Dhaka, Comilla, Noakhali and Sylhet areas and instructed ports to raise Marine Warning No. 2.
Vessels greater than 65ft in length are not restricted from operations under Warning No 2, Dinesh Kumar Saha said. But service was halted twice as cautionary measures amid the storm on Sunday, he added.
