BANGKOK(NNT) – The flood situation in the four northeastern provinces of Ubon Ratchathani, Yasothon, Roi Et and Si Sa Ket is showing signs of abating, with temperatures dropping in most parts of the country.

The Office of National Water Resources (ONWR) has reported a medium high pressure front moving in from China to cover Thailand and the South China Sea, indicating it will result in winds across the Gulf of Thailand and a reduction in rainfall in all regions except the Southeast, which is to experience scattered showers between September 27 and 29, 2019.

Water levels in the Chi River passing through Maha Chana Chai district of Yasothon province and through Ubon Ratchathani province; the Moon River passing through Phibun Mangsahan district of Ubon Ratchathani and Lam Se Bok weir passing through Trakan Phuet Phon district of Ubon Ratchathani are set to recede.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) has noted the four northeastern provinces are still experiencing floods and are in need of assistance. Forest runoff recently inundated the Kabin Buri district of Prachin Buri province, but the situation has since been resolved. Four districts in Sa Kaeo province were similarly hit by runoff, with floodwater around Phra Prong canal still 30 to 50 centimeters deep. The DDPM has coordinated with soldiers and the local administration to provide further assistance.
