Northern Bangladesh is likely to experience flood
The water level of the Brahmaputra basin is likely to rise above danger level in the next few days, a flood monitoring agency forecast. The Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre (FFWC) based their assessment on the trend of the rainfall in the upper catchment of the river in India’s Assam and the incessant heavy rainfall in the upstream that has been continuing for the last couple of days. “If the rainfall continues like this, Bangladesh might experience a flash flood in the northern districts beside the Brahmaputra banks – commonly known as Jamuna in Bangladesh,” said Sazzad Hossain, executive engineer of FFWC. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the Assam and Meghalaya states there will experience heavy to torrential rainfall till July 06. Under the influence of the heavy rainfall in the upstream from the last few days, the water level of another major river system in northern Bangladesh, Teesta, has been flowing 5cm above the danger level. FFWC also reported that the water level of Brahmaputra might likely to rise in the next 24 hours. Meanwhile, the water level of the Surma-Kushiyara river system in the northeastern part of the country is above danger level in the last two days due to the rainwater coming down from upstream. FFWC in its flood summary that was issued on Sunday morning said the Surma is flowing 67cm above the danger level at Kanaighat area, and the Kushiyara is flowing above 77cm, 72cm and 24cm of danger level at Amalshid, Sheola and Sherpur-Syhet areas respectively.
