Municipal area flooded from rainwater, Karatoa 2cm below danger level

Water levels are rising in Panchagarh after two days of heavy rain and with water coming down the rivers in the region from upstream.

Water levels have risen in the rivers flowing over the district. In Karatoa the flow was 2cm below the danger level, Water Development Board said on Tuesday.

Many areas in the district headquarters remained waterlogged. Water has gotten into people's homes and offices. Even the Panchagarh deputy commissioner's office was flooded.

The streets are under water in the municipal area's Islambagh, Dokropara, Kayetpara, Uttar Jalashi and Stadium Road, among other areas, impeding traffic and commute.

Municipal Mayor Md Towhidul Islam admitted that there was waterlogging in the town due to several roads and drainage being under construction. He said the issues would be resolved when the construction work is complete.
