Traffic Police radio reported floodings in Muang district, with some areas having the water level more than one metre. Several cars were submerged as the floodwater entered the municipality last night, it added.

Roi Et was one of several provinces placed on storm alert until Sunday by the Meteorological Department. The storm crossed from Laos into the northeastern region in Nakhon Phanom yesterday morning and is moving at a speed of 10km/h towards Loei.

A flash flood caused by the storm left students in Phon Thong district of Roi Et stranded at their school. The strong current also made it dangerous for the students to attempt to leave Anuban Phon Thong School.

Rescuers evacuated the students on boats through the strong current to higher ground.

Roi Et governor Wanchai Kongkasem said soldiers also helped move the students and other residents to safety.
