Southern Thailand is suffering from downpour-triggered floods, with all 16 of Nakhon Si Thammarat’s districts, eight of Phattalung’s districts, and three of Chumphon’s districts declared disaster zones yesterday.

In response, the government will open a flood situation follow-through centre at Government House this morning.

PM Abhisit Vejjavija said that he had instructed Sathit Wongnongtaey of the PM’s Office to coordinate with the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department (DPMD) to assist flood victims in the South, especially in hard-hit Nakhon Si Thammarat and that he himself would visit the National Disaster Warning Center (NDWC) today to check disaster warning systems.
