BANGKOK, Oct 5 (TNA) – Flooding remained critical in many provinces of the Northeast because water exceeded the capacities of many reservoirs in the region.

 

In Nakhon Ratchasima province, the reservoir of the Lam Takhong dam in Si Khiu district held 324 million cubic meters of water, equivalent to 103% of its capacity of 314 million cubic meters. The biggest reservoir of the province was discharging 400,000 cubic meters of water a day.

Are we looking at the same level of water (mis) management that we saw in 2011??

 

Down here in the south we really can't cope with any more flow without serious issues 😞

Not sure what area of the South you are but there is a massive amount of water heading towards Bangkok from the North/North East. Here in Loei we have had the biggest flood since 2011

 

Yeah, sorry. We are on the northern edge of BKK so we expect the imminent arrival of your water 😞

When up to your neck in it up north I don' think they care about Bangkok getting some.

Maybe it will wake up someone to do something positive when their desks in the ivory towers are floating around the room.
