Flood Relief Operations Command daily report

The ocean tide recedes a little today and more water is being drained into the Chao Phraya river. Less water in the north makes it possible to reopen the Asia Highway.

More water pumps are installed in all the canals to expedite water flow.

Sluice gates are coordinated to protect the important economic hub of Bangkok.

Authorised personnel will tour the affected areas and can issue direct orders to rectify the situation.

More and more water run-off from Phaholyothin inundating Kasetsart and down to Sena-nikhom

More areas in Thonburi are being inundated. Residents are advised to evacuate before flood is too high.

Big bags, 2.5 tonnes per bag, are being placed along Local Road to erect new barrier. It is expected to finish on Friday at 3.5 km long. If it is finished, it will slow down flood in Don Mueang and Lak Si.

Police advise against double parking on expressway as it is dangerous and impedes traffic flow. All double parked cars will be towed away.

A few people stay on expressway overnight. Please desist and come down. It is too dangerous.

Time of worst case has passed but Bangkok will continue to see creeping water.
