KRABI: -- As flooding continued in several southern provinces, some for over two weeks, flood-stricken residents are now warned of waterborne diseases after two deaths were reported in Krabi province.

 

Krabi hospital doctor Dr Supoj Phukaoluan said that two people died from Leptospirosis after they have lived in their flood-stricken villages.

 

They were a male and a female who lived in Krabi provincial seat which were hit by two metres high flood.

 

Advice has been given to villagers to wash their feet after they wade in dirty water.

 

Meanwhile Din Daeng subdistrict of Lamtab district is still flooded. The floodwater was between 30 centimetres to 2 metres high.

 

Authorities have to use the flat bottom boats to distribute the flood relief packages to the flood victims.

 

More than 700 rais of rubber and palm oil plantations were affected by flooding.

 

In Phatthalung, highway workers were hastily repairing a damaged section of Phetkasem highway eroded by flashflood.

 

Trucks dumped rocks and debris in order to fill the collapsed section of Phetkasem Road which was damaged on Khao Phap Pha, between Phatthalung and Trang.

 

The road was damaged because heavy rain has caused the slide of the soil. The full restoration work could be done after the rain has fully stopped.

" Advice has been given to villagers to wash their feet after they wade in dirty water. "

 I've lived in Jomtien 12 years and have never gone in the bay water. Even dipping toes in that cess pool makes me wary.

RIP to the two

Washing feet is a good advice, but can be a quiet difficult task when everything is flooded up to 2 meters.
