In India, over 11 million people were affected by floods in four states. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast more heavy rain for the region in the coming days, the IFRC said in a report.

According to the report, In Bangladesh, floods are likely to get worse as swollen rivers from India pour into the low-lying and densely populated areas in the north and centre of the country.
