Gaemi loses her bite, but flood preparations continue

Gaemi loses her bite, but flood preparations continue | Thailand Floods (#ThaiFloodEng) | Scoop.it

"Science and Technology Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi yesterday warned of a storm surge, especially in Phetchaburi, as Gaemi triggered heavy rainfall in some eastern provinces.

 

Mr Plodprasop's storm surge prediction, however, has been downplayed by the Meteorological Department and a natural disaster expert, who said that a surge was unlikely.

 

The contradictory information came as the storm, which was believed to have weakened into a depression, reached the eastern region, and rains began in Sa Kaeo, Trat, and Chantaburi provinces."

An ad-hoc operations centre was set up yesterday to cope with the flood situation in Bangkok and elsewhere for a 30-day period as a result of Tropical Storm Gaemi, which is expected to hit Thailand by the weekend.

 

The centre, dubbed the Joint Operations Centre on Water Drainage in Low-Lying Areas and based in Bangkok Thai Tower off Phya Thai Road, is scheduled to remain operational until October 31. It is coordinating relevant operations among agencies involved, said Royol Jitdon, a key man in the government's overall flood and water-management operations."

Heavy rain, flooding in Bangkok | Bangkok Post: news

Heavy rain, flooding in Bangkok | Bangkok Post: news | Thailand Floods (#ThaiFloodEng) | Scoop.it

"Many areas of Bangkok were heavily flooded following heavy rain on Tuesday, as Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said the giant tunnel does work and floating debris does not obstruct the draining process.

 

Traffic police said the flood levels in parts of Bangkok such as Sutthisarn, Din Daeng, Don Muang, Pracha Rat Bamphen and Phaya Thai were as high as 80 centimetres.

 

The flooding caused heavy traffic congestion in many areas of the capital city.

 

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration posted a message on the social networking site Twitter apologising for the delay in its drainage effort.

 

"All workers are doing their best to alleviate the problem for the people of Bangkok," the BMA said."
