Downpour inundates Mawa-Kaorakandi ghats

A heavy downpour has inundated two out of three ferry ghats on both sides of the Mawa-Kaorakandi Highway in Madaripur disrupting ferry movement after the water level at the river Padma rose abnormally since Thursday evening.

Several hundreds of vehicles have got stranded on both the sides of the ghats causing huge sufferings to the passengers, reports our Madaripur correspondent.

Several hectares of cropland in the coastal district also have gone underwater by the rainfall.

Under the influence of the depression, continuous downpour since Thursday evening has apparently paralysed life in the district.
