Flood hits two districts of Satun


SATUN, Dec 2— Forest runoff flooded houses in Khuan Don district and the provincial seat of this southern province on Sunday, affecting residents particularly riverside communities.

Overflowing water from two canals reportedly flooded several transportation routes in villages and caused traffic inconvenience.

The inundation was triggered by heavy incessant rain and high tide during the past few days.

Responding to the ongoing situation, Satun Governor Nuachai Jiraapirak instructed relevant agencies to closely monitor the rainfall situation along foothills and near waterways, particularly in mudslide-prone areas.
