BANGKOK, Nov 23 — Dismantling the giant sandbag ‘big bag’ barrier at Don Mueang’s Directorate of Air Operations Control intersection on Phahonyothin Road has not yet impacted inner Bangkok, according to Flood Relief Operations Centre (FROC) Director Pracha Promnog.

Meanwhile, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) will open three sluice gates at Khlong Mahasawat to one metre as demanded by Nonthaburi residents, Mr Pracha said, as the impact could be manageable.
