Heat wave sweeps over parts of country

Staff Reporter:

Parts of country are experiencing a mild heat wave with the mercury soaring to 37.4 degree Celsius in the capital on Sunday.
Country’s highest temperature 38.5 degree Celsius was recorded in Chuadanga.
Day laborers, rickshaw pullers, farmers, and others who generally work outdoors are finding it increas-ingly challenging to continue working under the intense heat of the sun. Even animals and birds are rest-less and struggling in the scorching heat.
According to a Met office bulletin, mild to moderate heat wave is sweeping over Dhaka, Khulna, Bari-shal divisions and Rajshahi, Pabna, Bogura, Moulvibazar, Chattogram, Rangamati, Chandpur, Noakhali, Feni, Cox’Bazar & Bandarban districts and it may continue.
Day and night temperature may rise slightly over the country, it said.
Khulna correspondent reports: Khulna region is currently experiencing fluctuating maximum tempera-tures between 37 and 38 degrees Celsius, which is causing great discomfort to workers and animals alike.
As the day progresses, the temperature keeps rising, making it earable for people to move around in the scorching heat.
Water scarcity is also becoming a pressing issue in the coastal areas of Khulna, adding to the suffering of the people.
Ramadan has coincided with the intense heat, which is adding to the struggles of the low-income work-ers.
A day laborer said, “I work for Tk 500 per day and find it difficult to do soil-related work in the ex-treme hot weather.”
A Rickshaw puller said he is also facing similar difficulties.
His rickshaw does not have a battery and needs to be driven using foot pedals, which is very difficult to do in the scorching heat.
Despite this, he still has to take his rickshaw out to earn a living and provide to his family.
Pedestrians are feeling the discomfort of the heat. Due to their fasting, their throats are becoming dry, and the extreme heat makes them feel chilly.
The senior meteorologist at the Khulna Meteorological Office, Amirul Azad, said that the heat will per-sist for the next 3–4 days.
With the intense heat causing such discomfort, many people are flocking to electronic and hand-fan shops in the city to find some relief.
