Floods have hit the Kabin Buri district of Prachin Buri province hard, forcing the relocation of 734 inmates at Kabin Buri prison as the water continues to rise. 

Somchai Premjai, the Kabin Buri prison commander, said he had sought permission from the Zone 2 Corrections Office in Chon Buri to relocate the 734 inmates to Sa Kaeo and Chanthaburi prisons.

Before noon on Sunday, the prison was 20cm under water and the level was still rising.
