Water is rising in the major rivers of the country including Padma, Jamuna, Brahmaputra and Teesta. As the water of these rivers flowed over the danger zone, different parts of the country including North Bengal were flooded on Friday. As a result, millions of people have been flooded.
The worst situation is in the northern districts. The flood situation in Nilphamari has deteriorated due to the rising water level of the river Teesta in the upper reaches.
