  • Flooding in Bangladesh

    September 26, 2016

    Low-lying Bangladesh is located in the world's largest river delta system. The impoverished South Asian nation is crisscrossed by about 300 rivers that empty into the Bay of Bengal. Much of the country is a few meters above sea level, making it prone to natural disasters like cyclones and floods. Flooding is a common and recurrent natural phenomenon that hits Bangladesh during the June to September monsoons every year.
