Heat wave may continue 2 or more days

A heatwave sweeping the country amid frequent power outages has hit public life hard this summer, putting many elderly people at risk of heart-related illness.
The heatwave which started wreaking its fury on Friday will continue for the next few days, Met office sources said.

Amid the hot weather, people are also experiencing load-shedding for up to five hours every day. Frequent power cuts added fuel to the fire of the burning sun, mounting public sufferings.

A mild heatwave is sweeping over Dhaka and Khulna divisions and the regions of Rajshahi, Pabna, Chandpur, Maijdee and Barisal.

It may continue for two or more days, according to local Met office.

The highest temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in Jessore while temperature in Dhaka was 36.8 degrees.

The Met official said the heatwave will sweep for a few more days as there is no sign of rain in the atmosphere.
