Bangladesh floods: Communities in Sylhet and Sunamganj have been deluged
Heavy monsoon rains over the past few days have led to rivers bursting their banks, cutting off around 2 million people in northeast Bangladesh. Many families are stranded and could run out of food within days.
Communities in low-lying areas in Sylhet and Sunamganj have been deluged. Homes and schools as well as vital infrastructure such as power supply lines, water sources and roads are all damaged or underwater. Many people have been affected by floods for the second time in a month, after severe flooding also struck the region in mid-May.
