PRACHIN BURI: Water flowing from national parks has caused flooding in a riverside community in Kabin Buri district.

Water from Khao Yai National Park, Thap Lan National Park and Thap Lan reservoir caused the Prachin Buri River to overflow into Talad Kao community in tambon Kabin.

About 50 houses were inundated. Residents moved belongings to the second floor of their homes and are using ladders to come and go. The flood water was 20-80 centimetres deep and still rising on Friday.

Talad Kao resident Thawat Wongsa said the flooding began on Thursday morning and was likely to worsen because the community was in the path of runoff from the national parks and discharges from the reservoir, which was now full.
