The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation reports that the flood situation in Nakhon Sawan has returned to normal while expressing concern over the overflow of Chao Phraya River and the flash flood in the South.

Despite the situation in Nakhon Sawan province previously returning to normalcy, 6 provinces still remain in critical condition from flash flood. The overflowing water from Chao Phraya River into riverside areas including 1 district of Sing Buri, 3 districts of Ang Thong, and 9 districts of Ayutthaya, has not subsided. Meanwhile, in the southern region, residential and agricultural areas in 3 districts of Chumphon, 4 districts of Surat Thani, and 6 districts of Nakhon Si Thammarat have constantly been hit by heavy rain and flash flood, with one fatality so far.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation has vigorously been seeking cooperation from all concerned agencies to urgently give assistance to residents in the flood- ravaged areas.
