Kanchanaburi Governor Jirasak Phumsawat on Friday declared Sangkhlaburi a flood disaster zone to speed up help to affected villagers.

The governor took the action after seven villages in Tambon Nong Lu and three villages in Tambon Laivo were hit by floods on Friday morning following heavy rains that hit 70 per cent of the district.

The disaster-zone declaration allowed the provincial administration to bypass the bureaucratic process to send help and compensation to the affected villagers.
