The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEA) has been ordered to prepare for possible flash floods around factory zones as tropical storm Gaemi moves through Thailand over the next few days.
Industry Minister Pongsvas Svasti said on Thursday the storm could bring very heavy rain to many regions of the country and there could be a large volume of run-off flowing to Bangkok and nearby provinces.
All industrial estates in western and eastern parts of Bangkok were directed to closely follow the water situation. Officials must be deployed around the clock to monitor the water level outside and around their flood prevention walls, he added.
