Over 2 million people have been affected by severe flooding in Bangladesh since 11th May 2022. Two out of four districts in Greater Sylhet Division is being washed away by the flood in particularly Sylhet and Sunamgonj District.
Never before in the city of Sylhet we have witnessed people are using boats for their normal travelling on the road instead of vehicles. Residents of 17 sub-districts have been living amid huge sufferings as the overflowing river water flooded their homesteads.
Niloy Pahsa, deputy assistant engineer of Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB), said the Surma River in Sylhet has been flowing 177 cm above the danger level. Water enters the locality after damaging 34 embankments by the floods so far.
Food and drinking water crises are also intensifying with the surging water level, according to local residents. It was said that the last time we witnessed such flood was in 2004 and expressed concern that the flood situation will become worse in days leaving the villages and towns in extreme crisis situations.
