Mountain run-off slams into 18 villages

- +

Mountain run-off hit almost 20 villages in the northern province of Lampang, while river overflow has worsened flooding in Nakhon Ratchasima, Chachoengsao, and Chon Buri, authorities say. 

More than 100 households in 18 villages of Muang Pan district were hit by the run-off, which was caused by downpours in Jaeson National Park, assistant district chief Prapas Kamuanglue said yesterday.

The water gushed down from several mountains to the villages, he said, adding that about 1,000 rai of agricultural land was also flooded. Several roads were cut off. Police and soldiers have been sent to the area to offer help with disaster relief and rescue operations.
