The flood situation in Sunamganj has started to take a turn for the worse due to onrush of water from upstream and rainfall in the last three days.

The low-lying areas of Chhatak, Dowarabazar and Sunamganj Sadar upazilas are seeing a rise in floodwaters as of Thursday morning, leaving local residents marooned again.

Many roads in Sunamganj city are now underwater, increasing the sufferings of the flood victims.

Jahurul Islam, executive engineer of the Bangladesh Water Development Boards’ local office, said the flood situation had worsened slightly but had not become devastating yet.

But the situation would not improve if the rainfall continued, he added.

Army, navy and coast guard personnel, the local administration, and different organizations are still distributing relief materials to the flood-affected people of the district.
