Thailand hit by tropical storm Doksuri

Several parts of Thailand have been badly hit by tropical storm Doksuri.

Farmlands in Nong Chang District and Thap Than District of Uthai Thani have been severely damaged by heavy rain and strong winds.

Farmers there had to rush to harvest their crops although it was one week before schedule in order to avoid further damage by the rain. Especially-high humidity in the harvest means farmers get lower prices than usual.

In Phitsanulok, residents of Nakon Thai District, which borders Laos, have experienced severe flash flooding from the adjacent hills while their farmlands and roads have been damaged accordingly.

Meanwhile, in Bueng Kan Province, the arrival of tropical storm Doksuri has resulted in continued downpours and caused a powerpole to topple, as well as blocked traffic in Seka District.

Some areas of Phang Nga Province have also been flooded due to raging storm waters from the Khao Lak – Lam Ru national park. Local officials have been been trying to resolve traffic congestion while facilitating the needs of residents and tourists.

The Department of Disaster Mitigation and Prevention said today that the effects of tropical storm Doksuri have been felt in 29 districts in nine provinces but the situation has now eased in some of them.
