26 provinces at risk of flooding

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation has warned residents in 26 provinces across Thailand to brace for flash floods and landslides.

DDPM chief Chatchai Promlert said the flood-prone provinces include Tak, Chiang Mai, Nong Khai, Phuket and Krabi. Residents in low-lying areas are urged to closely follow weather updates.

Disaster prevention units in these provinces have been instructed to prepare to assist those affected by the imminent deluge.

The Meteorological Department earlier reported that a strong monsoon which continues to cover the upper parts of the country will bring rains to most provinces during September 11-13.
