Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong today (July 31) explained that the flood situation in Attapeu and Champasak provinces of Laos caused the collapse of the Sapien-Senam Noi Dam.

“This has caused damage to property and caused many people to suffer,” he said.

“Therefore, to reduce the suffering of people, we would like to support and help the victims because Thailand and Laos are neighbours,” Gov Norraphat added.

A centre from receiving donations has been set up at the Phuket Provincial Office of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM-Phuket) located on the first floor at Phuket Provincial Hall in Phuket Town.

The centre is open during official government office hours, from 8:30am to 4:30pm weekdays.
