Dhaka, Jul 5 (UNI) The flood situation in Northern and middle part in Bangladesh intensified on Sunday as River Teesta overflowed its danger mark for the third time in 15 days, at Lalmonirhat.

The River Padma flowed above the danger level at three points as flood situation in central districts worsened as well.
About 59,000 families in 113 chars were affected, Water Development Board (WDB) executive engineer Rabiu Islam said.
WDB northern region chief Jyoti Prashad Ghosh said that the Teesta swallowed 250 acres land between Friday and Saturday, eroding 117 houses.

A Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre bulletin said that the flood situation in Rajbari, Manikganj, Dhaka, Munshiganj, Shariatpur and Faridpur may remain unchanged.

The swelling Jamuna wreaked havoc in Tangail with its Bhuiyanpur upazila vastly inundated and eroded in Tangail.
