Unprecedented floods in Bangladesh have killed more than 100 people, officials say. According to a daily flood report from the Health Emergency Operations Center and Control Room on Sunday, 102 people were killed in floods in 27 of the 64 flood-hit districts between May 17 and June 28.
Most of the victims drowned, were bitten by snakes and died of lightning in the flood-hit areas, the report said.
At least seven deaths have been reported in the last 24 hours as of Sunday morning, according to Xinhua.
Due to floods caused by torrential rains washed away roads and water flow on the hills, officials are still struggling to supply in many northeastern and northern districts.
The floods have caused extensive damage to homes and crops in the north and northeast.
Bangladesh’s Minister of State for Disaster Management and Relief, Mohammad Inamur Rehman, had earlier told reporters that government and private organizations were working together in the worst-hit Sylhet region.
