The flood-hit people of 18 districts are suffering from a shortage of drinking water, food and sanitation facilities now, although the water level in the major rivers is falling.
The floods that hit the country on June 27, primarily caused a loss of around Tk500 crore for the agriculture sector, the agriculture ministry said.
However, the government said it has enough stock of food and other relief materials and are distributing those following the demand of district administrations.
Meanwhile, the rivers crossed the danger mark in 22 points in 12 districts in the last 24 hours ending at 9am on Saturday, the Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre said.
The water level in Ganges and Padma was expected to fall 24 hours after that.
Also, the water level is going down in the Brahmaputra, Jamuna, and Meghna rivers.
However, the Brahmaputra river was expected to cross the danger mark in the Jamalpur point.
The Centre forecast that the flood situation may stay stable in the next 24 hours ending at 9am on Sunday in five districts – Munshiganj, Faridpur, Madaripur, Rajbari, and Dhaka.
The situations in Sunamganj, Kurigram, Gaibandha, Bagura, Jamalpur, Natore, Sirajganj, Tangail, and Manikganj were also likely to improve during that time.
The floods may continue throughout July in the northern, northern-central and central parts of the country due to heavy rainfall, the Bangladesh Metrological Department said.
Also, the ongoing floods in 18 districts have heavily damaged cultivation of Aush and Amon paddies, vegetables, nuts and other crops.
