A hail storm along with wind and rain has swept through the city of Dhaka. The first signs of precipitation have come as a welcome relief after prolonged dry weather. Dhaka, Bangladesh. 24/02/2010.

The shower, the first of the season, brought a sigh of relief to the city dwellers experiencing dry weather for the last couple of weeks.

Many people were seen collecting hails from the ground at different parts of the capital out of fun following a gloomy afternoon.

The gusty wind along with rainfalls on the other hand caused sufferings to many, especially the homebound commuters. They were seen standing under shades until late evening due to the lack of transport while many others faced huge traffic congestion at different areas during rains.

The whole city plunged into darkness as electricity distribution system collapsed in many parts of Dhaka.
