But FFWC forecasts another spell of flood across the country in August-September
The overall flood situation in the country will improve next week, the Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre (FFWC) has said.
Meanwhile, the northeastern and southeastern districts of the country have been witnessing the development of flood conditions, Arifuzzaman Bhuiyan, executive engineer of the FFWC, said on Monday.
The situation would improve with the decrease of rainfall, he said.
However, the flood condition would worsen in the northern and north-central regions this week, Arifuzzaman forecast.
He said rivers of the country were flowing above danger levels in 26 points.
The FFWC official said: "Another spell of flooding is likely to occur across the country in August or September."
Thousands of people have remained marooned by the floods triggered by heavy rainfall for the last couple of days. They have been suffering immensely, as their houses have collapsed and croplands have been destroyed.
They are passing days with inadequate food and scarcity of pure drinking water, being vulnerable to water-borne diseases.
On Monday, the Met office on its website said heavy rainfall might occur over Rangpur, Mymensingh, Sylhet and Chittagong divisions during the next 24 hours, beginning from 10am.
