Dhaka, May 22: The flood waters have started receding in Sylhet. The water level of Surma, Kushiyara, Dholai and Piain rivers has decreased a lot. However, despite the water shortage in these areas, the suffering of the people is increasing.

On Saturday (May 21) in different parts of Sylhet, the affected people were seen wiping out the areas, houses or shops where water had entered. However, everyone has to get up to speed to get back to normal as it was submerged in water. Polly Begum, a resident of Laladighirpar area of ​​the city, was seen wiping the frozen water from her house.

She said water had run out of his house last night. Even then there is a lot of water stuck in the house. These waters have been irrigating since morning. Then clean the house and apply disinfectant spray.

Abul Khair, a resident of the city's suburbs, said there had been no power supply in the suburbs for four days. Meanwhile, the water in the reserve tank of the house is almost at the last stage. He did not know when the power supply would be restored in these areas even though the flood waters started receding. As a result, he also expressed doubts about when the water problem of the house will be solved.

Abdus Salam, a resident of Kalapara in Ward 10 of Sylhet city, said that when water entered his house, the gas connection was cut off due to water entering the gas line. He also said that the problem of this gas will not be solved if the water is not completely reduced.

Saeed Ahmed Chowdhury, a senior official at the Sylhet Meteorological Office, said the weather was improving day by day. Where even a few hundred millimeters of rain fell three or four days ago, the amount was only 12 millimeters in the last 24 hours. He added that the amount of rain will come down drastically between May 23, 24 and 25. The flood situation will further improve.
