Wow! great pictures - that is a lot of water in some areas!

The storm passed close to Udon, where I am West of the city we didn't get much volume of rain, less than a couple of inches, lot of "heavy drizzle"

We got hit in Sisaket a couple of years ago, but it wasn't heavy rain, two dams bursted and the water came from two sides. 

 

   Luckily no flood this year, I can only hope it stays like that. Being through that isn't nice at all. The whole area was flooded and only reachable per boat.

 

  It was great that the Thai army had helped us a lot with boats to get our stuff out. Of course not all....

 

   These photos are a few years old, nothing to do with 2019!!!

So sad and as you can imagine how many would have flood insurance.

 

This country needs massive investment in infrastructure to stop the cycle of drought ,flood, drought, flood etc.

 

Seems fast trains ,submarines and new tanks have priority

here is the story in thai:

https://www.thairath.co.th/news/local/northeast/1649918

 

Mass of water spilling over the Lam Pao Dam The water barrier is still at Roi Et. The water mass cannot be broken. Then the 3 spots flow rapidly into the houses. Tens of thousands of acres of farmland, animal pens, rice fields have been drowned...

 

The latest point between Ban Tha Pho With Ban Tha Yiam Flap, broken into 2 points. The first point is about 15 meters wide, the second point is about 7 meters. The flap is broken at approximately 05.30 on 31 August and the 3rd point at Ban Tha Yiam. Had broken at about 9:30 am, resulting in water mass flooding houses, people, rice paddies, animals, including tens of thousands of rai of rice In which all sectors have combined the power of guard duty And packed sandbags All the days, 24 hours, still unable to fight...

Thank you.

 

Lam Pao dam is in Kalasin but is affecting Roi Et.

 

The ones that concern me are well to the East and I hope that my people are too busy helping others rather than affected themselves.

Sad to see but these same people were complaining of serous drought 3 weeks ago

 

The country needs the rain but collection systems must be organised much  better than they are now

I doubt that any "organized" systems could  ever cope  with  such a  deluge. But yes, infrastructure  to cope  with  drought needs  some major  consideration. I  found it disappointing  that while resevoirs were  bone dry I  did  not see a single attempt to take advantage of that to  increase  the capacity in the  event of  eventual  rain . And if undertaken  on a massive scale  can reduce downstream effects.

Yet  to hear  about the possible squealing  from  Bangkok  if the  south bound  run off from this   reaches  there (again).

I think Bangkok will flood, tomorrow and Monday. Not to much.

 

Ranong and Phangnga today lucky a bit. Stop rainfall the afternoon so can drain. Now it rain heavy again. Maybe will be ok.

Why would you even think that?  Bangkok has not even had any significant rain from this system.  It is the Northeast locations that have had massive amounts of rain that need help now.  Drinking water is likely to be less than ideal as floodwaters fill the wells.

Correct, there's no danger to Bangkok. It'll swamp my place before it hits Bangkok and it's as dry as a bone here.

Ok, someone say on Facebook going to have big rain Bangkok today. I happy to be wrong.

 

But maybe in one week. The issan rain will not go to Bangkok. Can not.

But Phitsanulok and Phichit and Uttradit also flood already. It go to the Nan river, then Chao Phraya.

 

I not sure. Some people say it in thai news. I hope in wrong. The people in the flood area now need money from there family work in Bangkok.
