The overall flood situation in parts of the country may worsen further as the water levels in the Jamuna and Brahmaputra Rivers keep rising, said the Flood Forecasting Warning Centre (FFWC) of Bangladesh Water Development Board.

According to a FFWC bulletin released on Friday, the situation is likely to worsen further in nine districts namely Kurigram, Tangail, Sirajganj, Pabna, Manikganj, Rajbari, Faridpur, Shariatpur and Chandpur districts.

The water level of Brahmaputra and Jamuna may increase and it will continue while Teesta water level may cross its danger level, said the BFFWC.

According to the BFFWC forecast, the water in different rivers was flowing above their danger levels at 12 points out of 109 stations.
