Three people have been killed so far, three injured and 63,672 households affected by the flood crisis caused by storms since October 7, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation reported on Thursday.

 

Some 33 provinces have been hit by the disaster – Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Sisaket, Buriram, Surin, Prachinburi, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chanthaburi, Chonburi, Rayong, Uthai Thani, Samut Songkhram, Samut Sakhon, Suphanburi, Kanchanaburi, Chainat, Singburi, Ratchaburi, Nakhon Pathom, Pathum Thani, Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Surat Thani, Phang Nga, Krabi, Phuket, Trang, Satun and Songkhla.

 

Even though the situation in 14 provinces has improved, flood water remains in 17 provinces.

 

Rescuers have been dispatched to help affected people and solve water drainage problems.

 

The department is coordinating with various organisations in each province to handle the crisis and examine the damage in order to request financial assistance from the Finance Ministry.

The rain comes every year followed by flooding, nothing changes.

It changes a lot in fact, because the rain doesn't come as it used to be.

 

Instead of having it spreaded over four months during the Indian ocean monsoon season, we get it in a few weeks during the Pacific ocean typhoon season.

 

Not at all the same, especially if you are a farmer...

Not as bad as the UK, at any time of the year, you can have storm Jimmy, followed by storm Peter, then storm Margaret,  then whatever other name gets chosen.
