Three people have died in heavy monsoon rains at refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Earlier this week there were over 130 landslides reported.

There are over 700,000 refugees from Myanmar in the camps.

Estimates are that 300 mm of rain fell in 24-hours.

Bangladesh and certain regions of India like Assam and West Bengal, also frequently experience heavy floods during this season. Recently, areas in India that used to receive scanty rainfall throughout the year, like the Thar Desert, have surprisingly ended up receiving floods due to the prolonged monsoon season.
