Banglamung officials donated food and supplies to 40 flood-stricken families, but warned them they likely would be hit again.

District Chief Naris Nira­maiwong and his wife, Banglamung Red Cross head Supinya, helped distribute the relief bags to 70 people in the Fang Thon, Nong Sadao and Wat Thakradan communities of Banglamung Sub-district and Moo 1 village of Takhiantia Oct. 1, two days after a prolonged downpour flooded their neighborhoods and homes.

The public officials offered no hope that the disaster would not reoccur and, instead, they advised them to keep an eye on the weather forecast and move any valuables to higher ground in cases of prolonged rainstorms.
