BANGKOK, 11 June 2019 (NNT) - Deputy Premier and Defense Minister Gen. Prawit Wongsuwan has instructed administrative, military and police officers to coordinate closely in preparations for flooding in all regions of the country during the rainy season, according to Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Gen. Khongcheep Tantrawanich.

 

The authorities have been instructed to prepare for the prevention and containment of torrential waters, landslides and flooding in major provinces and to help victims promptly and reduce risks of damage to property and danger to lives. Local public health units are to prevent flood-related epidemics and dengue fevers.

 

Meanwhile, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is coordinating with every community to conduct surveys on risk areas and set preventive measures for short circuits and road traffic management around construction sites. The authorities are ensuring that drainage systems, water pumps, water tunnels and canals will be operable to cope with floodwater. The police and military will alleviate traffic congestion caused by flooding, road accidents or vehicles with engine trouble.

So, what can that be3? A law to put fenders on all motorized veichles? Might actually work as a tool to reduce accidents.

That super smart democratically elected guy running the show said 5 years ago that Bkk would never flood again! - "its just water taking time to drain."

Years ago the mayor of Bangkok was Samak Sundaravej who happened to be a colorful fellow. Once he was asked by reporters why he didn't go and see the flooded areas of the city.  He responded with "Why? I'm not Jesus, I can't walk on water." He later got in trouble for cooking food on TV...
