Floods in Bangladesh kill 42 people and leave millions trapped1 min read
So far, over 105,000 people have been evacuated, but police officers believe that over four million people remain stuck.
Former congressman and governing party leader in Sunamganj district Syed Rafiqul Haque claimed the nation would face a humanitarian disaster if effective rescue efforts were not carried out.
About 3.1 million people have been displaced, according to regional officials, with 200,000 of them residing in government-run improvised shelters on elevated embankments or other hills.
In recent years, Bangladesh and India have witnessed an increase in harsh weather, resulting in widespread devastation. Climate change, according to environmentalists, might lead to additional disasters, particularly in Bangladesh’s low-lying and highly inhabited areas.
