On Wednesday, water from rivers Kapotakkho, Koyra and Shakbaria reached over 6-7 feet height and flooded Maharajpur, Maheshwaripur, North and South Bedkashi unions of the upazila.

Meanwhile, the number of enclosures that got flooded by noon and by nightfall is yet to be counted by the administration, said fisheries officer Alauddin.

Every day, new villages are being submerged in the region as dilapidated protective dams of the Water Development Board are either already broken or incapable of holding high tide waters.
