Broken embankment causes flood in villages at Barguna

Title: Broken embankment causes flood in villages at Barguna

The villagers of and around Barguna are passing sleepless nights as poor constructions of embankment have taken away their home and assets. Thousands of people at 50 villages in Barguna have been marooned following the collapse. The residents along the coastal area are fearful since the embankments in the respective areas were not repaired properly. Different diseases are becoming rampant and the habitat is becoming unhygienic, said residents of Amtoli, Taltoli, Betagi, Bamna and Patharghata upazilas of the district. The embankment that was broken during Sidr in 2007 was never repaired properly and as a result, it kept on breaking during every monsoon that followed. Huge areas including crop land and fish farms have been inundated. Story prepared by Tariqul Reaz, DrikNEWS Correspondent, Barguna, November 2014.
