BANGKOK, 4th September 2018 (NNT) - Residents in the north, northeastern, and eastern regions are advised to beware of heavy rain and flash flooding, while the rise of the Mekong River continues to cause problems for people living in several provinces. 

Thailand's Temporary Crisis Center has warned of heavy rain in the provinces of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Lamphun, Lampang, Uttaradit, Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Nakhon Phanom, Sakon Nakhon, Mukdahan, Amnat Charoen, Rayong, Chanthaburi, and Trat. More rainfall is expected from September 7th to 9th. 

The Mekong River has overflowed its embankments in Nong Khai, Nakhon Phanom, and Mukdahan while Bueng Kan and Khong Chiam district in Ubon Ratchathani are also at risk. 

Nam Oon Dam in Sakon Nakhon currently holds 558 million cubic meters of water, down two million cubic meters from the day before. Downstream areas where the river has overflowed its banks include Ban Pok Yai in Phanna Nikhom district in Sakon Nakhon and Ban Na Wa in Na Wa district of Nakhon Phanom. 

Kaeng Krachan Dam in Phetchaburi province now holds 753 million cubic meters of water, down two million cubic meters from the day before. The dam’s spillways are currently 96 centimeters under water, but downstream areas are no longer flooded. 

Water in Vajiralongkorn Dam in Kanchanaburi province has stabilized at 8.37 billion cubic meters of water. Downstream areas are reportedly safe. The dam has enacted its outflow regime of 58 million cubic meters per day, resulting in the Khwae Noi River rising by around 40 centimeters. 

Srinakarin Dam of the same province currently holds over 16.17 billion cubic meters, up 28 million cubic meters from the day before. The current outflow has resulted in the Khwae Yai River rising by around 35 centimeters. Officials plan to adjust the dam’s outflow rate to 28 million cubic meters per day from September 7th - 13th. 

Khun Dan Prakarn Chon Dam in Nakhon Nayok province currently holds 197 million cubic meters of water, an increase of three million from the previous day, and is now at 88% of its capacity.

Yikes, that's us! . . . Can you manage to get all those boxes of U-beer up the stairs, dearest? . . . oh, and two dozen Mamma noodles . . . you know my favourite. I hate these rainy seasons and it's my visa-run to Nakhon Panhom next week and they're already underwater. Honey-pie . . . you'd better fix that hole in the canoe, whilst you're at it. What's that . . . you can only do one thing at once? Thais . . . don't you just love 'em.
