Heavy wet season rainfall is taking its toll on 25 provinces around the country, with flash flooding and landslides affecting over 25,000 homes. 11 provinces are thought to be the worst-affected, as they continue to battle heavy flooding. They are Ubon Ratchathani and Nakhon Ratchasima, in the north-east of the country, Sa Kaeo in the east, the central provinces of Samut Sakhon and Nakhon Pathom, the western province of Kanchanaburi, Uthai Thani in the north, and Surat Thani, Trang, Satun, and Nakhon Si Thammarat in the south of the country. In addition, it’s understood 1 person has died in the eastern province of Chanthaburi, while 3 people have been injured in the central province of Singburi.

However, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation says flood levels are slowly decreasing, adding that help is being sent to affected households and increased drainage efforts are taking place.

Meanwhile, the Thai Meteorological Department says rainfall is set to ease, although isolated heavy showers can be expected in the north-east, east, and south of Thailand. The TMD says a weak monsoon depression lies across the lower central, upper south, and east of the country, with a weak south-westerly monsoon in the Andaman Sea, Gulf of Thailand, and south of the country. Waves in the Andaman are about 2 metres, swelling to over 2 metres during thundershowers. All ships in the area are advised to proceed with caution.

On average, September and October are Thailand’s wettest months. Read more about Thailand’s annual monsoon HERE.
