Flooding remains in eight provinces, mostly in the Northeast, and has affected 1.8 million people and damaged 3.9 million rai of farmland over the past month.

Chatchai Phromlert, director-general of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, said on Sunday that rain-related flooding existed in the seven northeastern provinces of Kalasin, Nakhon Phanom, Nong Khai, Roi Et, Sakon Nakhon, Ubon Ratchathani, and Yasothon.

The other province was Ayutthaya in the Central Plain, which absorbed huge discharges of water from the Chao Phraya dam in Chai Nat province.
