Flooding in many northern provinces still worrisome


PHITSANULOK, Oct 2 — The flood situation in many northern provinces is still worrisome as the flood hit areas are expanding, and landslides have occurred in many locations.

In Phitsanulok’s Wang Thong district, the Wang Thong river overflowed flood homes and agricultural areas.

A 10 metre stretch of the Wang  Pikul subdistrict dyke was breached and could not be repaired at the moment due to the strong current and the continuing downpour.

Flooded areas were expanding and some points were under almost one metre of water.

Landslides have occurred at many locations in the northern province of Mae Hong Son. Provincial authorities used heavy equipment to clear mud and debris from roads, particularly on the Ban Pho Sor-Mae Sariang Road which is closed as the shoulder subsided.

Floodwater at the lower Rama VI Dam in Ayutthaya has risen by 10-20 cm while Ubon Ratchathani floodwater is easing.
