Bridge approach on Debraipach Bazar-Islampur road collapses
Jamalpur is flooded by the rising Jamuna river following continuous rainfall and water from upstream.
The water level crossed the danger level at the Bahadurabad Ghat point of the Jamuna river in the last 24 hours (from 5pm on Friday to 5pm on Saturday), the Water Development Board said.
Several houses on the river bank in Dewanpara got flooded on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the approach road of a bridge on the Debraipach Bazar-Islampur road collapsed. It is feared that the bridge might collapse at any time. Locals have moved their belongings and domestic animals to safe places fearing a collapse.
Islampur Upazila Nirbahi Officer Md Mizanur Rahman said he visited the area and has informed the Water Development Board authorities of the matter.
He said sand sacks should be dumped as soon as possible to prevent the bridge collapse.
