Nine provinces in Southern Thailand suffer from flooding, three people die

Southern Thailand –

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) reports nine provinces in the South of Thailand are suffering from flooding as heavy rains continue. Three people have died in the floods.

The DDPM reports that monsoon rains have covered the Gulf of Thailand in the southern part of Thailand causing heavy flooding from December 17th until tomorrow (December 20th).

Nine provinces are still suffering from flash flooding impacting a total of 15,648 families in Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Trang, Satun, Yala, Songkhla, Narathiwat, Pattani, and Phatthalung. These are in total 49 districts, 1,028 villages, and 51,543 families. Three people have died in the floods.

Many parts of the Southern provinces are nearly inaccessible and under water and as a result travelers and tourists are asked to take caution in advance and map out their travel routes while listening to local weather reports about the ongoing situation.
