Sattahip’s Air and Coastal Defense Command is now serving as a relief center to victims of devastating floods in Bangkok and surrounds.

Royal Thai Navy Adm. Surasak Rungruengrom designated the ACDC base as a relocation center for 400 evacuees, with the first flooding victims arriving Oct. 27.

Navy personnel prepped the facility to provide accommodations, food and public facilities at airstrip hangers 21 and 23. Each is able to handle 200 people. Airstrip commanders Surawong Wongwanich and Wichu Thewrungsacha were assigned to oversee the evacuees needs and safety.

The Navy is still accepting flood-relief donations.  To donate, call 038-431-477.
