Provinces affected by Vamco now recovering


BANGKOK, 29 September 2015 – The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) has revealed that situations in 24 provinces previously affected by tropical storm Vamco have returned to normal. 

According to the DDPM Director-General, Chatchai Promlert, officials have been deployed to survey damage in those provinces and report back to the DDPM so that help can be sought to assist those affected by the storm.

A low monsoon trough, which is moving across the lower region of the Central Plains, the east coast and the upper part of the South has triggered flash floods in Satun and Pang Nga provinces.

The DDPM has dispatched rescuers to help people affected by the deluge. It is also prepared to respond to emergency situations, which are expected to last until tomorrow. People who need help are urged to call Hotline number 1784 round the clock.
