CHIANG MAI, Sept 7 - Residents in the northern province of Chiang Mai have been warned of continued heavy rain, as 15 districts have been declared disaster zones.



Komsan Suwanampa, a Chiang Mai disaster response official, said the province has been affected by heavy rain and flood since the beginning of August. Fifty-one subdistricts in 15 districts have been declared disaster zones, affecting 68,628 households.

Mr Komsan said eight districts are now on alert for possible landslides from continued heavy rain, including Chom Thong, Samoeng, Omkoi, Mae Wang, Sam Kamphaeng, Doi Saket, San Pa Tong and San Sai.

The Chiang Mai provincial seat was flooded this morning in some locations from overnight heavy rain.

Meanwhile, in Tak province, forest runoff hit Umphang district. District chief Suchart Theekasuk asked local administrative officials and border patrol police to help flood-hit residents to move their belongings to higher ground and reported the situation to the governor seeking more relief measures.
