Ten provinces still affected by flooding

The Disaster Prevent and Mitigation Department said only 10 provinces are still being affected by flooding as a result of torrential rain that hit the upper part of the country in August.

The ten provinces are Sakon Nakhon, Roi Et, Nakhon Phanom, Nakhon Ratchasima, Kalasin, Yasothon, Mukdahan, Bonbon Ratchathani and Amnat Charoen in the Northeast Region and Ayutthaya in the Central Region.

All concerned agencies have been instructed to keep a close watch on all reservoirs and to drain water out of economic zones as soon as possible.

Nakhon Phanom has taken a large quantity of water which flowed from the Nong Han lake in Sakon Nakhon province along the Nam Kam River. Hardest hit are Nakae, Wang Yang, Renu Nakhon, Nawa and Si Songkhram districts where more than 3,000 houses and about 100,000 rai of farmland have been inundated. These districts have been declared disaster zones.

Thongplew Kongchan, deputy director-general of the Royal Irrigation Department, said Lam Pao Dam in Kalasin province is now holding 1,678 million cubic metres of water, or about 84% of the full capacity of 1, 980 million cubic metres.

Therefore, more water is being released from the dam to enable the reservoir to take more water which is flowing steadily into the dam.

As a result of the release of more water from Lam Pao Dam, houses of villagers in Khong Chai and Kamalasai districts of Kalasin have been 50-60 centimetres under water.

The flooding situation in Kalasin, Roi Et, Yasothon and Ubon Ratchathani provinces has been under watch.

In the Chao Phraya river basin, northern run-off has inundated much of Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Phichit and Nakhon Sawan. The water level on the upper part of the Chao Phraya Dam is 15.50 metres above the mean sea level. The dam is releasing water at the rate of 1,400 cubic metres per second.

Suchart Charoensri, director of the 12th Irrigation Office in Chai Nat, said the water level below the dam from Chai Nat’s Sapphaya district to Sing Buri province will not go up. However, the water in the Chao Phraya River from Ang Thong down to Ayutthaya will go up by 5 � 10 centimetres. People living in riverside communities in Pa Mok district of Ang Thong and Bang Ban and Sena districts of Ayutthaya are advised to be on alert.

The Meteorological Department has forecast that the volume of rainfall this year will be about the same as last year. Therefore, the Royal Irrigation Department will divert water from the Chao Phraya River into water retention areas on both sides of the river at the same rate as last year.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and his entourage on Wednesday morning flew from Don Mueang to Sakon Nakhon province to inspect the flooding situation.

He listened to a situation briefing from Withaya Chanchalong, the Sakon Nakhon governor, at Krit Srivara military camp. Mr Withaya said the flooding in Sakon Nakhon is expected to return to normal by Aug 4 and the repair of Huay Sai Khamin reservoir is expected to be completed on Aug 12.

Gen Prayut ordered all government agencies to quickly distribution assistance to flood-hit people and assess the flood damage.

He instructed the Interior and Agriclture and Cooperative ministries to examine all reservoirs throughout the country to keep them in a good condition so that they can serve as major sources of water for use in the dry season.

The prime minister and his entourage then went to the flood evacuation centre before proceeding to Tambon That Choeng Chum to take part in a Big Cleaning Day programme.

In the afternoon, Gen Prayut flew on a helicopter to see a watergate on Nam Kam river in which water is being drained into the Mekong River. He was scheduled to return to Bangkok at 4pm.

A total of 18 districts of Sakon Nakhon had been hit by floods, in which three people were killed and one missing. Over 583,000 rai of farmland was inundated and many public utilities were damaged.
