 413 villages under 41 unions of Eidgah, Teknaf, Ukhiya, Kutubdia, Maheshkhali, Pekua, Chakaria, Ramu and Sadar upazilas of Cox’s Bazar have been inundated due to the heavy rains and onrush of water from hills, report UNB, banglanews24.com.
Thousands of people have been marooned as the low-lying areas have been submerged.
 Meanwhile, at least 20 people have died in the last two days due to landslide and after being washed away with the onrush of water at Teknaf, Ukhiya, Maheshkhali and Eidgah upazilas of the district.
 District Relief and Rehabilitation Officer Jahangir Alam said that 413 villages under 41 unions have gone under water due to the heavy rains and onrush of water from hills.
 Meanwhile, the maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla, and Payra in Bangladesh have been advised to hoist at the mast local cautionary signage to alert vessels of a possible squall.
 The weather office’s advisory for cautionary signal number three – which means that a depression has formed and may affect the port later – comes in the wake of the well-marked low over the southwestern part of Bangladesh and adjoining areas lying over the western part of Bangladesh and the adjoining Indian state of West Bengal.
“Under its influence, deep convection is taking place and a steep pressure gradient lies over the North Bay and adjoining areas,” said a Met Office bulletin.
Squally weather may affect the maritime ports, the North Bay, and the adjoining coastal areas of Bangladesh, it added.
According to the daily weather bulletin, light to moderate rainfall or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty or squally wind may occur at most places over Rangpur, Rajshahi, Dhaka, Khulna, Barisal, and Chittagong divisions.
Similarly, many places over Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions may experience moderately heavy to very heavy rainfall, as per the bulletin.
Day and night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country.
