Despite the propaganda that the Military Council Army is rescuing residents who have fled the flood in Bago City, there are tens of thousands of people who are trapped in their neighborhoods due to the flood and need help. Due to the flooding, Internet and phone lines were cut in some areas of Bago City, so people who were trapped were unable to communicate with each other, and it was difficult to rescue them. Some places have broken lines. I can’t communicate where and how it’s going. Some are trapped inside their homes. There are already tens of thousands of refugees. They have difficulty with food. There are many places where help is not available.
As water overflows from the spillways of the dams in Bago Division, flooding has occurred in neighborhoods in Bago Township, and the water has risen to nearly ten feet in some neighborhoods. Every time there is a flood in Bago City, the water enters the neighborhoods that are not flooded, and the water rises above four feet, so people are trapped in their homes and rescuers are unable to go to help. Due to the flood, the roads are submerged and the expressway is submerged from mile 39. In addition, Yangon, The Mandalay Railway and the Bago Mawlammyine Railway are flooded, so passenger train trips have been suspended.
