In the flood-hit Myanmar, more than 200,000 (two lakh) people have been affected by the waterlogging due to excessive rains in the end of July 2015. Reports say the severe floods across Myanmar killed 27 people. The flooding happened across Myanmar in 12 regions and states, taking in its spell houses, farms, railway lines, bridges and roads. The water level in Myanmar’s five major rivers – the Ayeyawady, Chindwin Thanlwin, Sittoung and Ngawun – are still dangerously high.
As many as 31 relief camps have been opened in Kayin, Mon and Bago region. The government has announced Chin and Rakhine states and the Sagaing and Magway regions as disaster-hit areas, say reports.
