Following several days of heavy rain, the Mae Korn River burst it banks in Moo 8 village in tambon Sunsai.
The overflowing water inundated some 100 houses in Moo 4 and Moo 8 villages.
The floodwaters also resulted in fish ponds overflowing.
Villagers said the water was so high that vehicles could not use the road, prompting those who need to work outside the village to wade through the water.
Following the collapse of the river’s flood walls, Maj-General Bancha Duriyaphan, commander of the 37th Army Circle, deployed troops to help villagers to erect flood levees using sandbags.
