The river Jamuna’s water level is rising in Bogra due to heavy rains and hill slopes coming down from the upper reaches. In 24 hours, the water level has risen by 8 cm at Sariakandi point in Bogra district.

The water flowed over 11 cm of the danger zone around 6 am on Saturday. On Friday, the water level in the Jamuna River was 3 cm above the danger level.

Bogra District Water Development Board Executive Engineer Md. Mahbubur Rahman said the danger level in the river Jamuna was 16.70 meters. The water level rose to 11 cm above the danger level on Friday morning.



Sariakandi Upazila Executive Officer (UNO) said Md. Rasel Mia said, This monsoon, the water level of Jamuna and Bangali rivers has risen due to the river’s rising water, two floods have caused severe damage in the Upazila.

The flood situation improved when Jamuna’s water level decreases after touching the danger limit of 128 cm in August. However, many affected families have not yet returned home.

Meanwhile, the water level of the river Jamuna has risen and crossed the danger line in the last few days. As a result, 600 families have been shifted to temporary shelters from the char areas. Hundreds of hectares of crop fields, including Masakalai and Gainja paddy, have been flooded.
