Disaster zones declared in southern Thailand amid deadly flooding

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced in southern Thailand as severe floods destroy or damage many thousands of homes, killing about a dozen people, and leaving vast tracts of crops spoiled.

Authorities have declared a state of disaster in 8 provinces including Chumphon, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Surat Thani and Trang.

Hundreds of villages have been evacuated in Narathiwat, reportedly the hardest hit province.

The main reservoir in Tha Chana district had been filled to capacity and was overflowing, sending down a surge of floodwater and prompting warnings about potentially deadly landslides, officials told the Bangkok Post.

Meantime, 3-meter high waves have been pounding the Gulf of Thailand, officials said.

Recent Flood Toll in Thailand

October 2, 2013. Deadly floods affected 32 of Thailand’s 77 provinces killing at least 23 people, affecting 2.85 million others and forcing at least 15,000 people to abandon their homes, said the Thai Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.

Typhoon NARI Chased by TS WIPHA

Posted by feww on October 12, 2013

The Typhoon Indochina Didn’t Need

Typhoon NARI, having pounded northern Luzon, Philippines, is now reorganizing packing more power on her way to Central Vietnam, Indochina Peninsula.

Typhoon NARI [locally known as “SANTI”] killed at least 26 people in Central Luzon, with many more reported as missing, affecting tens of thousands of people in the region.

The typhoon left at least 60 towns submerged under floodwater in Aurora, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Zambales provinces, destroying or damaging scores of homes and tens of thousands of hectares of crops.

Electrocution, mudslides and falling trees were cited among the causes of typhoon victims death.

Meantime, tropical storm WIPHA, currently chasing NARI, has begun intensifying. The storm is expected to strengthen to a Cat 3 typhoon force, tracking toward Japan in the next few days.

This typhoon has a “to whom it may concern” as the addressee, with northern Thailand typed on it’s receiver’s address line.

Floods have affected about 3 million people  in Thailand since September 17, 2013.

Meantime…

Floods Breach Industrial Park in Thailand

Thai officials said floodwaters were threatening a large industrial estate southeast of Bangkok, reported AP.

Floods have breached Amata Nakorn industrial estate in Chonburi province, 60 kilometers SE of the capital, AP quoted a senior local official as saying .

Heavy rains and runoffs from nearby hilly areas have flooded the park submerging it under about 30cm of water, however, floodwater has not yet affected factory operations, the official said.

“The park has more than 450 plants, about half of which are owned by Japanese companies. It was not affected during widespread flooding in 2011 that devastated much of the country, leaving more than 800 people dead and 6 million hectares (14.8 million acres) of agricultural, industrial and residential lands affected,” AP reported.

Flooding has killed dozens of people in Thailand so far this year, inundating at least 32 out of 77 Thai provinces.

On September 29, 2013 in More than 2 million people affected by flooding in Thailand FIRE-EARTH said:

Last Few Famous Words?

The deputy PM responsible for flood management has assured the public that a scenario like the 2011 devastating floods in which all major dams in Thailand reached full capacity would not happen. Unless, off course, there’s more heavy rain in the north!

“He said the major dams in Thailand are now at half of its capacity and can contain more than 10,000 million cubic meters,” said a report.

He said earlier that the flood situation this year is “not worrying,” and that it’s “under control,” adding that “Bangkok would be 100 percent safe unless there is more heavy rain in the North for a couple of days.”
