Residents in 6 northeastern Thai provinces warned to prepare for evacuation as Chi river rises


Recommended Posts



Thailand’s National Water Directorate has issued an advisory,for riverside residents living in 28 districts in six north-eastern provinces, to move their valuables to higher ground and be ready for evacuation anytime between today (Monday) andOctober 15th due to possible flooding from the swollen Chi River.


According to the directorate, heavy rain, caused by Dianmudepression and monsoon trough on September 24th and 25th, has driven a substantial rise in the level of the Chi River, overflowing its banks and inundating the upper river basin in Chaiyaphum province.


The water has flowed downstream to the Chonnabot Dam in Chonnabot district of Khon Kaen, raising the level of water in the reservoir to about 3.5 meters above the low-lying bank, resulting in flooding of low-lying areas in Kok Pochai, Wang Yai, Chonnabot, Ban Phai, Ban Haet and Phra Yuen districts of Khon Kaen province.
