Sattahip warned of risks at sea at harsh weather continues


Chonburi – Sattahip District Chief Anucha Intasorn has issued a warning against swimming in the ocean at this time, and for small boats to stay in port. A strong monsoon system in the area has whipped up waves of 2-3 meters and Sattahip, Samaesarn, Bang Sare, and Jomtien are all under threat of dangerous wave action, which could even pose a threat to people on shore.

Meanwhile in other parts of the country soldiers and other workers have installed a 60 meter long Bailey Bridge on Highway 2094 connecting Seka district of Bueng Kan province to Akasamnuay district of Sakon Nakhon after flood waters undermined the two lane road, stopping traffic since June 8. The temporary bridge has allowed travel to resume but drivers are being told to proceed with caution.

In Nong Khai province, large water pumps have been setup in Wat Tat community due to heavy rains flooding the area. The two 60 centimeter pipe pumps, worth over 18 million baht, will permanently keep water flowing through the area’s drainage pipes to speed up its release into the main river.
