The National Committee on Water Resources of Thailand has issued a warning for 8 provinces located near the Mekong River regarding possible floods due to heavy rains, starting from Thursday, August 10th, until Tuesday, August 15th.

The 8 provinces at risk are: Chiang Rai, Loei, Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Nakhon Phanom, Mukdahan, Amnat Charoen, and Ubon Ratchathani.

The potential cause of these floods is the high water level in the Mekong River, which is rising due to continuous rains. If the rainy situation does not improve, the river could overflow its banks, leading to flooding in the northern and northeastern parts of the country.

Committee representatives stated that authorities in these regions should be prepared to handle the situation. Relevant experts have already been directed to assess the condition of irrigation structures and to clear obstacles along pathways to the river to enhance drainage efficiency.

Furthermore, excavators, trailers, and mobile water pumps are prepared to provide assistance to those affected by the floods. Residents living near the river are urged to closely monitor the situation to be prepared for the consequences of changing water levels in the Mekong River.
