Heavy rains in Bangladesh have left 47 people dead and at least 90 in Nepal. 

The water levels of the two rivers, Padma and Jamuna are increasing as reported by the Bangladesh Water Development Board. 

Authorities are finding it extremely difficult to provide relief supplies to the affected people. 

According to Foyez Ahmed, the deputy commissioner of Bogra district in  Bangladesh, there are ample relief materials but the main issue is to get the relief to the people. There is an immense shortage of transport facilities to cover the regions that are submerged underwater. 

The floods in Sirajgang and Tangail regions may cause havoc together with Manikgang, Rajbari, Faridpur, and Munshiganj regions.
