The present waterlogging condition of Chittagong city this monsoon, triggered by the incessant rainfall over the last few weeks, has become unbearable for the city dwellers.
Most of the areas under the Chittagong City Corporation are inundated, causing immense sufferings for the commuters every day.
The video captured today on the Chittagong-Kaptai road shows a vivid picture of the present scenario, which has been prevailing for the last five days.
The roads have also become damaged and bumpy, causing the commuters experience moon ride on their way to the destination. Often people and vehicles topple over as they attempt to make way through the waterlogged roads, with the mounting risk of severe injuries, reports our staff correspondent from the spot.
The drainage system of the city has also been totally broken down. Most of the canals, which snake through the city, have been filled up with garbage, sedimentation and encroachment deterring the excess flow of water during monsoon.
