Mitigation agency prepares for flood crisis in North


The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation reported that 10 provinces in the North are facing a flood crisis, with 7,830 homes affected, one person killed and two missing.

The Interior Ministry is evaluating damages to report to the Finance Ministry, so the latter can come up with a system of supporting people affected by floods in the future.

Chayabol Thitisak, the department’s director-general, said monsoon rains have been hitting many parts of Thailand since last Thursday.

The department is collaborating with the Army and local organisations to rescue flood victims and help move their belongings to higher ground.
