Narsingdi Correspondent: Erosion along the banks of the Meghna River has taken an alarming turn with the onset of the monsoon season, causing existence threat to Charmadhua union of Raipura upazila.

Erosion caused by the Meghna has taken a devastating turn recently and the damage caused has been immense, locals said.

Nearly 30 houses of two villages have been gobbled up by the river in the last several days, rendering 20 families homeless.

Some locals have managed to move their houses but many still fear that the river might reach their homes in the near future.

Though the erosion of the riverbank keeps increasing, the government has done nothing yet. If immediate actions are not taken, Charmadhua will go into bed of the Meghna.
