“Horrific” Floods Devastate Bangladesh Before Monsoon Season

In late May, Northern Bangladesh saw the worst flooding in two decades. Millions found themselves stranded as their villages and cities were inundated with water.

Millions of people remain without electricity or clean water as well. Many are desperately thirsty. The situation might get worse if water-borne illness begins to spread.

Bruce Allen with FMI says it’s not even monsoon season yet. “The pouring rain has forced 90,000 people into shelters in this area of the world. About 270 camps for people to live in have been set up until the water subsides, but it’s still just difficult to get to these camps. Some of the photos that we have been seeing are horrific. Roads are destroyed. Transportation is out of commission.

“Four hundred miles of strategic highways in that northeast section of the country are still underwater.”
