Floodwater was reported to be as high as three metres in some parts of the northeastern province.

Several areas have been submerged, especially Non Sawang and Non Sa-ard communities in tambon Nai Muang of Ban Pai district.

People thronged local roads, waiting for help from authorities after their houses were submerged overnight.

Some families were stranded and were waiting on their roofs.

The currents were strong and all types of vehicles were submerged.

Suparb Maungsri, 57, of None Sa-ard, said the floodwater had kept rising since 8pm Friday. As of 10am they had received no help.

“My family members and our neighbours have to stay on roofs. We urgent need help. Boats should be brought to take community people to stay Wat Chanprasit in Ban Pai municipality.

“The hardest hit area are people living in the municipality, as well as None Swang and None Sa-ard, totalling 1,000 households.

“This year, the flooded area has expanded, making the deluge the biggest in 40 years,” he added.

Ban Pai police have later helped people move their belongings from their houses in the municipality and evacuated some of them to dry areas.

Yes G.  Floods and droughts are time after time here coming as a 'surprise' it looks like. While with simple anticipation regarding this wet/dry cycle a lot of discomfort and tragedies can be for a great deal avoided.

Yes K.,saving water for the next dry season  will probably their main concern right now.Oh dear !!

Provinces normally suffer to much drought are now taken by surprise by floods. Hope they have the sense to catch and store the water for the next dry season in order to water their next rice planting and other crops. That is how it could work.
