Hundreds of households in riverside communities in Bangkok’s neighbouring province of Nonthaburi, which are not protected by flood walls, have been flooded since Saturday as the swollen Chao Phraya River spilled over its banks.

 

55-year old Mrs. Chanthana Klabklaidee, a house owner in the Wat Tuek community, told Thai PBS that she had built a sand bag barrier as a precaution, but the water levels increased so fast that it flowed over the sand bags and poured into the house.

 

She said that the floodwater in the house is about knee deep, rendering the kitchen, toilet and bathroom unusable, adding that she has had to buy a water pump because there are 12 occupants and she could not wait for help from the authorities.

Send the clean-up bill to Prayut.

If the water is knee deep she obviously waited until the last minute.

 

I am sorry but people that live along the banks of rivers or klongs in Thailand this time of year should know better and be careful.  Also sand bags themselves are not going to stop the water.  you need a plastic barrier in front of the bags.

 

I am sorry she is going through this but guarantee it is not the first time.  What is happening to the hotels along the C P
