BANGKOK, 20th September 2018 (NNT) – Most regions of Thailand are expected to continue to receive heavy rainfall, with close monitoring being maintained against rain-induced disasters. 

Continuously wet conditions have been forecast for the northern, central, eastern and southern regions of the country during this period due to the strengthening southwest monsoon over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, coupled with the effect of southeasterly winds prevailing over the East and the Lower Northeast. Waves are expected to reach a height of 2-4 meters in the Andaman Sea and two meters in the Gulf of Thailand. Boat operators have been told to exercise caution at sea while small boats should be kept in port for another day. 

Heavy downpours are expected in 38 provinces, including Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Tak, Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Phetchabun, Ratchaburi, Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Rayong, Chanthaburi, Trat, Surat Thani, Krabi, Phuket, Trang, Songkhla as well as Bangkok and its vicinity. 

According to the Temporary Crisis Center, incessant rain has swelled many important rivers across the country. Those currently at risk of overflowing include the Nan River in Nan province, Khwae Noi and Khwae Yai Rivers in Kanchanaburi, Nakhon Nayok River in Nakhon Nayok and Prachin Buri River in Prachin Buri. 

Meanwhile, six reservoirs have storage exceeding 80 percent of capacity, namely Nam UnDam in Sakon Nakhon province, Kaeng Krachan Dam in Phetchaburi, NaruebodindrachintaReservoir in Prachin Buri, Vajiralongkorn Dam in Kanchanaburi, Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam in Nakhon Nayok and Lam Takhong Dam in Nakhon Ratchasima. The authorities responsible are constantly adjusting water discharges in accordance with forecast rain.

I still hear a general saying that there will be no flooding, so this must be all fake news.

You notice NO rain for Korat,Buriram and Surin.? Hay Bangkok how about spending some money on a water distribution system for the NE. ?

You mean to say the lower northeast, as most of the northern and eastern provinces have enjoyed plentiful - if not too much.

Basically daily thunderstorms with lots of heavy rain in the Bangkok -area of Silom, Thonburi...

But I am fine- the dear leader promised, there will be no flood, so everything must be okay....even were people are standing in the water, that reaches up to their necks...

It hasn't rained yet today, and I haven't seen any floods even after the rain yesterday.
