The water level of the Jamuna River has been rising above the danger level, three times more in the last 24 hours, worsening the flood situation in Jamalpur and adjacent areas.

“The flood left at least 20,00 people of 15 unions of four upazilas marooned,” said Abdul Mannan, gauge reader of BWDB.

“The road transportation of the area has been severely affected, as the Mandal Bazar road link, and Islampur-Uliya-Mahmudpur road were waterlogged by the flood,” said the officer.

Crop fields in Belgachha, Kulkandi, Sapdhori of Islampur upazila, Badhadurabad of Dewanganj upazila are also underwater, said the farmers of the area.
