Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department chief Chatchai Promlert on Friday said flooding has eased in 10 out of 12 southern provinces. Only Phatthalung and Trang remain flooded, with 75 villages in five districts affected.
Floods have damaged more than 68,000 rai of agricultural land in the two southern provinces.
The upper part of the country has experienced colder temperatures since Dec 6. So far, five provinces in the North and the Northeast have been declared cold disaster zones, Mr Chatchai said.
