BANGKOK, 16 August 2010 (NNT) – The Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office has warned dwellers of three districts in the province of flashfloods due to frequent heavy rains during this period.

Chief of the Nakhon Ratchasima Provincial Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office Piyachat Insawang stated that three districts of the province, namely Soeng Sang, Pak Chong and Wang Nam Khiao, were now at risk of flashfloods resulting from continuous torrential rains. Areas around Khao Yai National Park in Pak Chong district were also highlighted as vulnerable. People residing in the mentioned districts were thus encouraged to take precautions against sudden floods during this period.

However, Ms Piyachat stated that the office had already established several operation centers throughout Nakhon Ratchasima province. The main duties of the centers are to provide immediate assistance for people affected by disasters in the province and to continually provide people with updates on weather conditions via local media to help them prepare for immediate evacuation.
