Overflowing Chao Phraya River floods communities in Chai Nat
CHAI NAT, 16th July 2017 (NNT) – Water that overflowed from the Chao Phraya River has swept through low-lying areas in Chai Nat province.
The thunder storms that hit Thailand recently, prompted officials at the Chao Phraya Dam to discharge 1,250 cubic meters of water per second into the main river, causing the flooding of communities in the Sapphaya district of Chai Nat which is situated on nearby lowland. The Royal Irrigation Department said there is a possibility that the amount of water released from the dam will be raised to 1,500 cubic meters per second on July 19th which is when water from the northern region arrives in the dam.
Meanwhile, in Uthai Thani, thousands of rice plantations have been damaged by floodwater triggered by continuous heavy rainfall. Villages and communities in the capital district are also suffering from the inundation. The level of floodwater is measured at 20-40 centimeters.
In Ang Thong province, police officers and government officials are traveling through inundated areas to offer assistance to those in need.
