Flooding stabilises in Kanchanaburi


KANCHANABURI, Oct 10 – Flooding in the western province of Kanchanaburi remains stable and many roads are still under water, impassable for small vehicles.

Chaiwat Limpawantha, Kanchanaburi governor distributed relief supplies to flood victims in Danmakhamtia district.

Flood has receded in some areas after it was hit by flash flood on Monday night. However, the water level in a creek is flowing rapidly and overflowing into 4,000 acres of farmers and at least 500 houses.

The province declared the district flood-hit disaster zone. A survey is being conducted whether it will also declare another three districts disaster zones.

The situation is expected to return to normal in the next 2-3 days if there is no more flash flood from the mountain range.
