Days of heavy rain at the beginning of monsoon season have caused widespread flooding in North eastern Bangladesh, leaving millions stranded and vast areas affected.

The country's Flood Forecasting and Warning Center have reported major rivers in the two northeastern districts of Sylhet and Sunamganj have swollen to dangerously high levels because of heavy downpours and the government has deployed members of the armed forces across the region to speed up flood rescue and relief efforts. The flooding has come shortly after pre-monsoon flood that badly affected the same northeastern region just a month ago, submerging 70% of Sylhet and 60% of neighboring Sunamganj, leaving at least 10 people dead and more than 2 million stranded.
