A total of 54 tambons in 17 districts of seven provinces have been hit by flash floods, triggered by continuing heavy rain, Chatchai Promlert, director general of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department, said on Friday.
The affected provinces are Phitsanulok, Ayutthaya, Angthong, Kalasin, Surin, Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani.
Mr Chatchai said the tropical depression that brought the rain has now weakened, but low-pressure system is still moving through the northeastern region. This has caused widespread rain, with particularly heavy downpours in the Northeast, East, Central Plains and Bangkok and nearby provinces.
