Flood wall reinforced along Yom River in Sukhothai to prevent flooding

Officials and volunteers in Thailand’s lower northern province of Sukhothai were mobilized Tuesday to install more sand bags to reinforce the flood wall along the Yom River, to prevent the overflowing river from flooding the municipal area.

 

Sukhothai provincial governor Mr. Maitri Traitilanant said, after an inspection, that the flood wall was at risk of collapsing in nine places, which require immediate repair after the province was battered by heavy rain brought by depression Kajiki. A special team has been assigned to inspect the areas at risk every 30 minutes around the clock.

 

Overflowing water from the Yom River swept into two villages in Tambon Yang Sai of Muang district Tuesday night, prompting the residents to rush to move their valuables to higher ground. However, many residents were not quick enough, with some of them complaining that they were caught off-guard by the rapid inundation.

Is this part of the wall that Yingluck allocated 800 million Baht to build after the 2011 floods ?   If not where did the money go as we aint got a wall yet but 'apparently' the money has been spent !

There is a wall in downtown Sukhothai, but it's only like 10cm-5inch thick at many places... and that's to hold back one of the mayor rivers of Thailand?!

Days of warnings but the usual response from residents, wait until the waters coming through the door before doing anything !

Can't change stupidity.

Ahem, this is way upcountry,  Those flood walls were built to protect Bangkok, so I assume from Nakorn Sawan south. Make gooogle your friend and check up on it. Oh and the Yom floods a lot so ....
