'Similar rainfall is expected for another 2-3 days'

As a result of continuous rainfall for the past week, more and more low-lying regions are becoming affected by the flood situation currently prevailing in Nilphamari.

Roads, homes, croplands in low-lying towns and villages have become waterlogged, meanwhile, small and big rivers mark a slight rise on account of ceaseless rain in the district. 

Lokman Hakim, meteorological assistant at the Saidpur Meteorological Office, said the district had recorded 45mm of rainfall in the last 24 hours. 

“Similar rainfall is expected for another 2-3 days,” he said. 

Meanwhile, Nurul Islam, gauge reader at the Teesta Barrage, said in the last 24 hours they recorded 97mm of rainfall at Dalia point in Dimla, Nilphamari.

The Teesta along with the Charalkata, Jamuneshwari, Chikli, Kumlai and Deonai rivers in the district show a slight rise in the last 24 hours, said the Dalia Water Development Board's Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre.

Although the Teesta was flowing 8cm below the danger level at Dalia point on Saturday morning, it still marks a rise from last evening when the river was flowing 24cm below the danger level.
