The bus service from the district resumed this morning, said Subroto Das Juntu, General Secretary of Bandarban Bus Owner Association. 

Flood situation in the district improved substantially as incessant rainfall and water level of the Sangu River receded during the last two days.

However, floodwater still flowing over the Bandarban-Chittagong road at Keranihat point.
