NAN - Continual torrential rain brought by Tropical Storm Talas, now battering central Vietnam, has caused flash floods in several areas of Nan province.

The provincial office of the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department reported small rivers connecting to the Nan River had risen rapidly and overflowed their banks, causing flooding in at  least three districts.

In Phu Phiang district, the Bang Tha Lo- Saeng Doa Road in tambon Fai Kaeo was covered with water about half a metre deep and impassable. At least 20 houses in a low-lying area close to the Nan River had been flooded.

Nannakorn School in tambon Na Pang had been temporarily evacuated and closed, the statement said.
In Pua district, the first floor of a building at Bansan School in tambon Sathan was flooded on Tuesday morning. Teachers and students had to move their belongings, books and teaching material to higher ground.

In Mae Charim district, strong flood currents tore apart a main bridge in Ban Nam Tuang in tambon Nam Phang. cutting the main transport route for the community.

The disaster office was closely monitoring the situation. People living near waterways were warned to prepare for further flooding and listen for updates.
In neighbouring Chiang Rai province, Bang Thung Luang School in Muang districtwas closed by flooding that began around 5am, reports said. There had been torrential rain overnight.

May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil know`s you`re dead!

Heavy rain brings flooding to Northeast

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general ... -northeast

"NORTHEAST – More than 1,000 rai of farmland in Nakhon Phanom has been flooded and people in Kalasin have been warned to brace for overflow from the Chi River after the region was pounded by heavy rain over the past week.

In Nakhon Phanom, assistance is being given to farmers in several districts whose rice fields were inundated by overflow from tributaries of the Mekong River.

They include Muang, That Phanom, Na Kae, Tha Uthen, Si Songkhram and Ban Phaeng districts.

Provincial governor Somchai Witthayadamrong said communities in other districts along the Mekong River had also been warned to prepare for flooding after the river level rose to 10 metres, only 3m below the critical level.

Mr Somchai said the river level was increasing by 50 centimetres per day. Villagers were advised to move their belongings to higher ground as the river could burst its banks if there was more more heavy rain."......
