September 03, 2019


Abstract : Mr. Chalermchai Sri-on, minister of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) said that the meteorological department warned the tropical depression in the South China Sea would land on Hainan, China, which would affect the Northeast region.

InfoQuest (September 2, 2019) -- Mr. Chalermchai Sri-on, minister of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) said that the meteorological department warned the tropical depression in the South China Sea would land on Hainan, China, which would affect the Northeast region. As a result, rainfall would increase in the region, and some areas would experience rainstorms which would led to flood. He has ordered the Royal Irrigation Department to make preparations to mitigate the possible impact.

Mr. Sumran Sarabun, director general of the Department of Agricultural Extension (DOAE), has ordered the provincial and county-level agriculture officials to collect data in flood-affected areas to submit to the MOAC, so as to help determine the follow-up assistance measures.

Mr. Chalermchai said that floods have become less severe, but there are still 16 provinces which remain affected by floods, namely, Phrae, Phichit, Nan, Phitsanulok, Uttaradit, Yasothon, Roi Et, Kalasin, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakham, Udon Thani, Ubon Ratchathani, Amnat Charoen, Mukdahan, and Sakon Nakhon.

And five provinces where life has returned to normal are Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son, Sa Kaeo, Chumphon and Ranong. As the harvest season is approaching in many areas, Mr. Thongplaew Kongchan, deputy director general of the Royal Irrigation Department, ordered to expedite pumping operations in agricultural areas to mitigate the damage to farmers. Economic zones and communities should also speed up drainage to relieve the public's travel difficulties.
