Water diverted from Korat dam to relieve shortage

NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Water is being diverted from the Lam Ta Khong dam in Si Khiu district to Non Sung district where all water sources have dried up, governor Wichian Chantaranothai said on Sunday.

Mr Wichian said an area covering eight tambons in Non Sung district is suffering from serious water shortages as all normal sources have dried up. To alleviate the problem, provincial authorities tried to deliver water by truck from Bung Phutsa, a reservoir in Muang district, to tambon Kho Hong and other tambons in Non Sung district..

But the authorities have been blocked by residents living around the Bung Phutsa reservoir who want to save the water for themselves, he said. They therefore arranged for water from the Lam Ta Khong dam to be diverted to the affected tambons in Non Sung district via irrigation canals. The diversion began on Saturday evening and the water is expected to reach Non Sung district on Sunday afternoon.

Aside from Non Sung district, a survey revealed that about 297 villages across the province would soon face serious water shortages, prompting the province to draw up a relief plan, Mr Wichian said. The emergency measures include dredging reservoirs and swamps, drilling more artesian wells and seeking financial support from the central government.

Govt plans biomass power plants using Napier grass from communities this year

UBON RATCHATHANI – The government plans to build biomass power plants with the use of Napier grass supplied by local communities this year, in an effort to create jobs and incomes, stimulate the local economy and strengthen national energy security.

Energy Minister SontiratSontijrawong visited the plant of Ubon Bio Ethanol Co Ltd in Baan NongPaen village in Nayia district of UbonRatchathani province recently. The firm purchases and processes tapioca, produces biomass gas from waste water and produces biomass gas from tapioca and Napier grass for a 5.6 megawatt power plant. The government is looking to encourage farmers to build community-based power plants producing biomass gas from Napier grass to create jobs and incomes, stimulate the local economy and strengthen the national energy security.

The energy minister said the biomass power plant in UbonRatchathani province will become a model biomass plant for communities elsewhere, able to access Napier grass which can be processed into biomass gas. However, it would depend on the preparedness of respective communities, ready to build one, beginning this year.

Korat Schools / Boy in coma after being shot at school
« Last post by Johnnie F. on January 04, 2020, 10:17:47 AM »
NAKHON RATCHASIMA: A fourth-grader was shot in the chest by a fellow student who brought his father's gun to school in Muang district yesterday.

The incident happened on the third floor of Building 7 at Sukhanaree School about 10.15am while the school was hosting a merit-making activity for the New Year.

A doctor said the injured boy was shot in the right side of his chest and the bullet had sliced through both lungs and exited his back on the left side. He was rushed to Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital.

As of press time, he was in a coma with both lungs ruptured.

The boy had suffered serious injuries while the bullet had also broken one of his ribs, said the doctor, adding that he was being cared for in the intensive care unit of the hospital.

Police investigating the incident said another boy, aged 10, brought the pistol to school and showed it to friends. The pistol went off as he was spinning it in front of his friends in a corridor outside their classroom.

Police said the pistol belonged to the boy's father, who is a soldier serving at the Suranaree camp in the northeastern province.

His father had left the weapon at home while attending a training exercise in another province.

His son had then taken it from the house to impress his schoolmates, they said.

After learning about the incident, parents rushed to the school to take their children home. The school management permitted only fourth-graders to leave for the day.

A parent quoted his child as saying the boy had first shown the pistol to friends last week and had since played with it in school, imitating moves he had seen in video games.

Korat News / Korat health office busts rumour of killer 'widow's ghost'

NAKHON RATCHASIMA: The public health office of this north eastern province has launched a campaign to calm public disquiet after six people in several tambons in Nong Bunmak district died during the past two months.

A rumour spread that the ghost of a widow had taken the lives of the six people. This prompted villagers to hang a red shirt in front of their houses, believing that this could protect their family members from the ghost.

Dr Narinrat Pitchayakamin, chief of the Nakhon Ratchasima Public Health Office, dispatched teams of medical staff to tambon Nong Mai Phai and other nearby tambons in Nong Bunmak district to investigate and establish the actual causes of the deaths.

The investigation revealed that of the six deaths, two died of stroke, two of cancer, one of complications from kidney disease and one died in their sleep.

Dr Narinrat said since the causes of the deaths could be scientifically established, there was no reason for people to panic.

Medical teams have been instructed to educate the people to take better care of their health by exercising regularly, refraining from smoking and alcohol use, and avoiding sugary, salty and fatty food to prevent disease.

In case of emergency, people are advised to call 1669 so that a patient can be taken to hospital for timely treatment, he added.

Calling the results of not exercising regularly, smoking and alcohol abuse, and eatinging sugary, salty and fatty food a "widow's ghost" is so much easier. But hanging out a red shirt won't even have a placebo effect.
