Thailand: Floods

Body

ince the start of the current monsoon season, flash floods, floods and overflowing riverbanks have brought accumulated humanitarian impacts to people, mostly in rural areas. Much of the floods were exacerbated by major dams being pushed to their capacities, which resulted in raised river levels downstream through the urgent release of water. (IFRC, 19 Oct 2022)

Floodlist and media reported 13,635 evacuated people, of which 13,135 were in 74 shelters across Ubon Ratchathani Province and 500 more in Lopburi Province. In addition, over 41,300 affected households were reported across the Provinces of Sisaket, Chiang Mai, Tak, Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Sawan, Sing Buri, Lopburi, and Nonthaburi. (ECHO, 6 Oct 2022)

The situation has deteriorated since 6 October 2022, a week after typhoon Noru hit Thailand and brought heavy rainfall. [...] According to the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) report on 11 October 2022, flooding occurred in 25 provinces (132 districts, 711 sub-districts, 4,377 villages), with a total of approximately 156,240 households (485,906 people) affected, four deaths and two injuries reported.
