Mr Chatchai said the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department has mobilised support from all resources to restore flood-hit areas, clean up and repair public utilities and provide assistance and remedial action to flood victims.

The Meteorological Department forecast is for more heavy to very heavy rain in six provinces in the lower South – Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat – from Jan 23-25, brought by the northeast monsoon covering the Gulf of Thailand and the South.
