1,000 villagers flee collapse of small dam in Ang Thong

1,000 villagers flee collapse of small dam in Ang Thong

A small dam collapsed in Ang Thong's Muang district, causing floods to spread to vast areas and prompting 1,000 residents in five villages to move their belongings.

The dam collapsed under the pressure of overflowing water following many hours of heavy rains, while the excessive water increased the currents in the swelling Thung Lam Tha Daeng nearby. The flood waters rose to a metre high in urban areas and markets in Muang district.
The provincial flood relief centre said a brimming Chao Phraya section was filled with water travelling from Sing Buri and Lop Buri, and the dam's collapse worsened the situation. A major school was also flooded with the provincial prison also facing the threat. Residents in tambon Sala Daeng and Pa Ngew have been warned.
Bang Pla Ma district in Suphan Buri, covering more than 100 households in tambon Ongkharak, has been under three metres of water.
Four major bridges have been closed to traffic indefinitely due to the swelling Chao Phraya River, and the canals under them - Rama IV, Rama V, KrungthepNonthaburi and RangsitPathum Thani - the Department of Highways said yesterday.
There are 102 key roads in 18 provinces that are now impassable due to flooding while 40 flooded roads are still useable, directorgeneral Wanchai Phaklak said. He called on motorists to study the road situation and alternatives before beginning their journey. They could also contact information service at the Department's call centre on 1586, or Highways Police on 1193 around the clock.
A 4,500squaremetre area belong to the Treasury Department in the government centre off Chaeng Wattana Road in northern Bangkok has been opened to shelter about 1,000 flood victims if needed, said Deputy Finance Minister Viroon Tejapaibul. A meeting hall is also open to host 800 government officials moved away from their flooded offices.
An indoor gymnasium inside the Public Health Ministry is open to prepare for 500 evacuees, with food, drinking water and mosquito nets ready, said Public Health Minister Witthaya Buranasiri, in case the shelter at a sports complex in Nonthaburi is overloaded.
Thailand is asking to study and possibly follow a flood relief plan used by the US government, which proved effective during the Katrina crisis a few years ago, Foreign Minister Surapong Towichukchaikul said. He added that a number of diplomats based in Thailand would be invited over to the Centre next week to observe how it operated.
