The tap water has run completely dry in six villages in a single Maha Sarakham district in what’s been called the worst drought in 40 years.

 Customary tap-water sources dried up early this year for 689 households in Phayakkhaphum Phisai district and now all other surface and underground water sources have been exhausted, according to Hom Utsa, the kamnan in the tambon of Mek Dam.

Saying he’d seen nothing as bad in four decades, he pleaded with the authorities to provide emergency aid. 

Hom said water pumped from Huai Lampang Chu had proved to be insufficient.
