Rangamati landslide damage yet to be assessed

The Rangamati district administration has yet to come out with a complete assessment of losses from last week's devastating landslides.

The landslides occurred in at least 30 places of the hill district on June 13. At least 116 dead bodies were recovered during the rescue operation which was officially called off on Friday evening.

Rangamati Deputy Commissioner Manzarul Mannan told the Dhaka Tribune: “The complete report on the damage was supposed to be prepared by Monday. Our officials are extensively working on it. We hope to prepare the report with the detailed scenario in one to two days.”

Meanwhile, people turned up in great numbers in the 19 shelters in Rangamati city after the fresh spell of precipitation on Monday.
