Heavy rain, alarm in Rangamati

Heavy rain, alarm in Rangamati
Fire Service began sounding alarms in several areas around Rangamati on Sunday morning after heavy raining started in the landslide-stricken district. People in risky areas were being told to evacuate from their homes to shelters for safety over megaphones, Fire Service Deputy Director Newton Das, who has been reassigned from Chittagong on special duty, told the Dhaka Tribune. At least 114 people died and hundreds injured in the district in late night landslides last week. Landslides have also taken lives in the neighbouring hilly districts, but Rangamati municipal area and its neighbourhoods are the most affected. Thousands of locals have left their homes and taken refuge in shelters and public buildings. Abu Bakr Siddique, a van driver from the city's Keranipara area said he and his mother had taken shelter at the Police Line School but his father was still at home. There are at least 20 families living in his neighbourhood, he said. Meanwhile, the district deputy commissioner was scheduled to hold a meeting with various agencies for disaster response at 11:30am.
