Mukdahan hit by mountain runoff, 10,000 rai of farmland under water

Runoff from a mountain inundated a main road and some 10,000 rai of farmland in Mukdahan’s Dong Luang district Saturday morning, the district chief said.

 

 

Dong Luang district chief Somsak Boonchan said the runoff from the Phuphan Noi mountain range was caused by several days of heavy rain.

 

The runoff developed into a large creek running down from the mountains that overflowed and flooded Khao Wong-Dong Luang Luang road in Ban Na Lak village of Tambon Phang Daeng.

 

The water level at the flooded section was so high that vehicles could not pass through.

 

The district chief said the authorities provided boats to provide a shuttle service for local residents, adding that officials were now stationed at the spot to facilitate the travel of the villagers around the clock.

 

The district chief said some 10,000 rai of farmland in the village were flooded and the water had now inundated nearby villages.

 

He said the Provincial Administration Department dispatched boats to provide immediate relief to local villagers, many of whom would be relocated from their flooded houses to a temporary shelter downtown.

Good opportunity to research this event and plan some water catchments for future wet seasons.

Is the runoff due to deforestation of the mountain tops as has happened in so much of the Philippines?

No,it's due to the nearby low pressure system,we've had a lot of rain in this region.
