On Tuesday, April 21, the Bangladesh Meteorological Department issued weather warnings nationwide forecasting heavy rains, thunderstorms, and strong winds. The inclement weather is to persist until at least Thursday, April 23.
Related transportation disruptions, hazardous driving conditions, and power outages are possible over the coming hours and days.
Individuals in Bangladesh are advised to monitor local weather reports, prepare for transportation disruptions (including road closures) and power outages, confirm travel itineraries, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities. Avoid walking or driving through floodwaters; 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
