BANGKOK, 24 September 2011 (NNT) – Thailand’s National Disaster Warning Center has issued an alert for people in several provinces for possible mudslides and flashfloods during this time.

The flood alert has been issued to people in Nakhon Ratchasima, Buriram, Surin, Si Sa Ket, Ubon Ratchathani, Amnat Charoen, Nakhon Nayok and Prachin Buri. Meanwhile mudslides are imminent in Rayong, Chantaburi and Trat provinces.

The National Disaster Warning Center said the central region was still at risk of inland flooding due to the amount of rain and the attempt to relieve the water from the dam.

The tide in the sea is expected to rise higher than the average sea level by 1.65 meters at 18.16 hrs today. Provinces that are located below the Chao Phraya dam could be affected in the next few days. They include Chai Nat, Sing Buri, Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani, Nontha Buri and Bangkok.

Meanwhile, heavy rains and flash floods are also expected in the southern provinces starting from Prachuap Khiri Khan all the way down to the southern peninsula.
