The thieves are always around as Jaba "seems" to make it easier to live such a life. Find it hard to believe that hotel owners are using this flood to raise their price for their shitty rooms from 120 baht to 500 baht.

And the politicians don't know how to "fix" the problem? Give me a break.-wai2.gif

A good one, indeed. Amphur Muang, which is in the middle of Sisaket, not too far away from the cops and city hall.

I genuinely feel sorry for you and hope that the future bodes you well, it must be heart-breaking to see not only your property but others as well under water. As you say, 'will have to start again', so I really do wish you well in the future and I'm sure my sentiments are echoed around anyone who hears about your plight.

Looking at those photos makes me feel very lucky that I'm in an area not prone to flooding, sort of brings home the reality of living in LOS.

All the very best and thank you for the photos.

I feel your pain though you are worse hit than me. I live in the housing estate on the right just after the prison when coming from the Amphur offices.I assume you are in the same area?

I am currently living alone (long story) and my Thai sucks but Monday I started to get the idea of what was going on and luckily my landlord showed up with a truck and 4-5 strong guys and my house were emptied in 2 hours and he is storing my stuff for me AND put me up in a room, with air con, wifi and a fridge and apologized for not having a TV.

I went back to the house today still about 80cm of water in the street but the house were dry but there should be more water coming :( I think its going to be a while before we get dry.

Its thousands of people, just where I live there are a couple of hundred houses all flooded and according to what I were told today we were only the 3rd worst hit area in Sisaket but its middle class so most people managed to pack up and get out in time, met my neighboor in Big C today, he is staying in a hotel but there are still a lot of poor people that are screwed and their only option is staying in a tent.

We're staying with some guys from your area in a house of a relative. I lived there for 10 years, never experienced a flood at "Kunlawadee Villa" and had just moved into another house. That's where the worst happened.

Many people said that very heavy rain will come on the 29th. I'm speechless for now.-wai.gif

P.S. Guess you know "Toni" from Switzerland? He's back in Europe, while his wife lost his money in a casino, when the flood came.

Sorry about the flooding in "Kunlawadee Village". I bought a house there when they were new. I think early 90's. We had one flood there that had 3-4 feet of water. I packed my daughter out on my shoulders . we had many warnings of floods coming but usually had maybe 6 inches in the house. I sold the house in '05 and came back to the U.S. with wife and daughter to get my daughter in a decent school system. Have you ever ran into Willie from Belgium or , Neil from California, I moved there in early 80's with 15 years in Kunlawadee. The best of everything to you and pray you will bounce back and have the restful live that can be had in Sisaket. Take care

Don.

Thanks. Yes, I do know Willem from Belgium, but he'd left Kulawadee many moons ago. Haven't heard anything from him. The Canadian Grad seems to be divorced from his wife. He used to live in Soi 7, when he was here.

No idea about a Neil..but must have met him.

Life must go on. Feel sorry for so many others too.We'd just moved into this place after the temple and then a flood. Life's a bitch.-wai.gif

The floods in Sisaket seem to follow on 2-3 days after my farm is flooded in Prank Khu. The water has risen again at my farm so it will probably rise in Sisaket too over the next couple of days.

I had lunch with Belgian Willie today - he is talking about staying in Sisaket again.
