Residents of a village in Nakhon Sawan's Muang district complained on Friday that they have been ignored by authorities for more than a month since their houses were flooded.

Residents of 87 houses in Ban Huay Hin in Tambon Phra Non said their village has been flooded by waters from Boraphet Lake.

They said the water was about 30 to 50 centimetres deep and was becoming polluted and giving off a foul smell.

They said the road to the village was also flooded and villagers needed to use boats to travel.

They complained that none of government agencies provided help and some families were in urgent need of drinking water.
