Water world: 500,000 rai in North inundated


More than 500,000 rai of land in northern Thailand has been swamped by floods so far, with this monsoon season seeing severe storms and intensified rains, according to the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Gistda) this morning.

The information was based on images captured by the satellite COSMO-1. Gistda added most flooded areas were those agricultural ones.

Also, these images will be passed to flood-relevant organisations, as supporting information of their operation.
