New houses to be built in replacement of flood damaged homes

NAKHON SI THAMMARAT, 3 February 2017 (NNT) – State agencies have begun moving in on areas of the south where floodwaters have subsided to rehabilitate both residential structures and farms.

The deputy governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat has led a combined force of military personnel to lay groundwork for the construction of new homes to replace those destroyed by recent flooding. The province has set aside a fund of 230,000 baht per home for the work and the effort has been well received by residents.

Similarly in Phattalung province, authorities have geared up to rebuild 9 houses with the help of engineering soldiers. The new homes are to be built in an area selected for its distance from flood-prone locations.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation has reported 3 provinces are still combating flooding, with over 3,400 households affected.
