BANGKOK, Oct 13 – Thailand’s National Flood Relief Centre on Thursday is to expedite water drainage through canals to the main rivers in the east and to the west of the central plain into the Gulf of Thailand to resolve the flood crisis in Thailand’s central provinces, according to centre spokesman Wim Rungwattanachinda.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra accompanied by Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha and officials from water management agencies will fly to inspect waterways from upstream Chai Nat to the lower central provinces to map out an implementation plan, said Mr Wim, who is also a secretary of the Prime Minister’s Secretariat.
