VILLAGERS ON EITHER SIDE of rivers in the mid-central region have been alerted in the wake of flash floods expected over the upcoming weekend, officials said today (Oct.4).

Those living in low-lying terrains in vicinity of either bank of Chao Phraya River, Noi River and Pasak River running through the mid-central provinces have been alerted by the authorities to prepare their livestock, their property and themselves for evacuation to higher grounds as more torrential rain and flash floods are forecast to come over the weekend.

The mid-central provinces accosting the overflowing rivers include Nakhon Sawan, Chainart, Singburi, Ang Thong, Lopburi, Saraburi, Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani and Nonthaburi.

The flowing water just north of Chao Phraya dam in Chainart was recorded today at about 16 metres high, compared to about 12 metres high south of the dam, the officials said.

More of the excessive water reportedly flowing at 1,449 cubic centimetres per second down Chao Phraya River today is expected to be coming over from the lower northern region due to torrential rain during the current monsoon season.
