ANGKOK, 8 February 2017 (NNT) - The Command Center for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation revealed that the South of Thailand no longer suffers from the flood crisis.

The command center has instructed provincial authorities to survey the flood damage and help people repair their homes within 30 days.

Farmers whose crops or livestock were affected by the inundation will be entitled to a financial assistance of 3,000 baht to be paid within the next 60 days. To be eligible for the compensation, the farmers must be registered with the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

Meanwhile, Interior Minister Gen Anupong Paochinda revealed that around 11,000 homes in the South were damaged by the floods, 6,000 of which have been fully restored while the maintenance process is now underway for the remaining 5,000 homes.
