Phetchaburi Deputy Governor Nathawut Phetpromsorn said on Sunday that the water situation had become serious in Phetchaburi province due to the heavy to very heavy rains in the area. There is a need to drain more water from the dam into the Phetchaburi River, which may cause flooding in the city, the official said.
Due to the construction of the railway bridge, the water level in Phetchaburi River will be higher than normal and there are obstacles in the waterways. Therefore, the official has warned people in the area to move their assets, the elderly, and sick people to a safe place before Sunday afternoon.
