The water level of the Teesta River is flowing over the danger line due to hill slopes coming down from the upstream.
According to officials of the Water Development Board (WDB), the river was flowing 28cm above the danger level around 12.30pm on Monday at Dalia Point in Nilphamari. But it came down to 9cm below the danger level at 6.00am.
It is learned that the water of the Teesta River has entered the lower parts of the river banks, causing floods in the area and resulting in the stranding of many families. Water Development Board has warned the people to go to flood shelters.
People on the Teesta river banks were worried although the water level of the river started to fall on Monday morning. At 6am, the water level was 3cm above the danger mark in India’s Domohani. According to several Indian news portals, water can move toward Bangladesh and cause flood.
