Ubon Ratchathani Provincial Governor Sarit Withoon inspected the flood situation in Baan Kok subdistrict of Khueng Nai district, where several areas have been heavily flooded even though it has not rained for the last two days.

A large volume of water has come from Yasothorn and Roi Et, flooding all 25 districts of Ubon Ratchathani.

The nine districts declared disaster zones include Muang Sam Sib, Trakarn Phuedphol, Na Yia, Tal Soom, Don Mod Daeng, Nam Khun, Lao Sua Kok, Khueng Nai and Warin Chamrab.

Floodwater is expected to rise over the next two weeks though water has been drained off into the Mekong River. Local villagers have been warned of the rising water in the Chee River.

Gen Prayut followed up on the flood situation in Ubon Ratchathani and Yasothorn by riding a route along the Chee River and other waterways in Baan Chaeng Noi village in Khor Nua subdistrict of the capital district of Yasothorn.
