Wont be much nearly as much room in the reservoirs this year. August will be interesting.

Reservoirs don't usually flood around here :)

Flooding requires sustained rainfall at a time when the reservoirs are already near full, meaning that a lot of water has to be released in a short time.

A lot of rainfall early on doesn't cause flooding as the water levels can be managed; there is time to get rid of excess water.

I suggest someone edits the alarmist and unnecessary topic title.

Indeed, it caught my eye enough to read the post and find out it was unnecessarily alarming and inflammatory OP next time suggest you try something far less tabloidish to get the readers attention.

I'm guessing someone flunked Charm School!

Would you like to call the Chiang Mai mail and correct their heading too?

Flood stage of the Ping river here in Chiang Mai is determined by rain fall and the little hands on the gates up river. August/September are the months that are normally of concern for floods. I do not remember heavy rains like we have been having this early, so when the upstream lakes are deemed full enough and some little fellow decides he wants to water the fisht downstream, watch out.

Right, but as there is more room in the overall system in May, they can release water only to the level where it can properly make its way down. Or choose not to release too much yet, or go very slow.
