The flood situation in Sylhet, Sunamganj, and Netrokona districts may further deteriorate in the next 24 hours, according to the Flood Forecasting & Warning Centre's latest bulletin.
According to the forecast circulated Saturday afternoon, water levels in all major rivers of the country continued rising, except the Surma in Sylhet - although may just have been due to being way over the red mark already.
Another transboundary river that was flowing way past its danger mark, the Teesta, may also normalise a bit, remaining near or slightly above its danger mark in the next 24 hours.
As a result, the flood condition may deteriorate in the low-lying areas of Kurigram, Gaibandha, Bogura, Sirajganj, Jamalpur, Lalmonirhat, Nilphamari, and Rangpur districts.
As important as the forecast for Bangladesh, medium to heavy and even very heavy rainfall is predicted in the north-eastern region of India, over parts of Assam, Meghalaya, and the Sub-Himalayan parts of West Bengal, in the next 72 hours.
