Run-off from the upstream Thung Song district inundated two tambon in Rassada district – Khlong Pang and Kuan Mao – on recent days. The waters have begun to recede, with depths now down to 20 centimetres to 1 metre in various areas, Anan said.
However Moo 8 village in downstream Kuan Mao district is expected to be inundated. The village is on the banks of the Trang River and serves as a “monkey-cheek” water-retention area during flooding.
Residents there have been alerted to move their belongings and livestock to higher grounds and the district has sent them a flat-bottom boat for transport, said Anan.
