Heavy rainfall and onrushing tidal water have made life difficult for around 700 families

Five villages of Tazumuddin and Char Fasson upazilas in Bhola district have been submerged following tidal water and heavy rainfall in the past two days.

The ring embankment near the earth-filled dam of Dalalkandi area of Chandpur union in Tazumuddin upazila broke down Saturday following the onrush of tidal water, reports UNB.

Water has been rushing in through the damaged dam, flooding the low lying areas, said Executive Engineer Kaiser Ahmed of Bhola Water Development Board (WBD).

Around 300 families in Mujibnagar union of Char Fasson upazila have been marooned following the onrush of tidal water through a km-long damaged embankment in Char Motahar point of the union.

Replying to a query, the WDB official said the embankment could not be repaired for lack of funds.
