Rivers across several communities in northeastern Thailand have overflowed due to the effects of Typhoon Rammasun, which has caused heavy rains throughout the area.

Typhoon Rammasun has caused torrential rainfall within Northeastern Thailand, with Yasothon province being the most-affected from the storm’s affects. Water levels along several canals have increased drastically, overflowing the banks and inundating 500 rais of rice fields.

The flood waters from the typhoon have also destroyed fish farms in a nearby community, causing distress to the locals.

Elsewhere in Chiang Rai province, the water level from the Kok River continues to increase steadily but has not overflown its banks yet. However, the rising water coupled with strong water currents have eroded part of the riverbank.

Chiang Rai Governor Pongsak Wongsamer has called on officers from the provincial Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department (DDPM) to inspect the damage, and warned locals to keep a close watch on possible flash floods and landslides. He has also had rescue teams on standby, ready to provide help around the clock.
