There Is Flooding All Over Thailand

Thailand has been ravaged by heavy rains and flooding. Rescue workers evacuated 40 patients from Bamnet Narong Hospital in Chaiyaphum recently after the facility was flooded.
As one of the buildings on the hospital campus was flooded up to 80 centimeters, the hospital suffered severe damage. One X-ray room and several labs were heavily damaged and unusable. In addition to the hospital buildings, four vehicles and seven ambulances were submerged in the rising floodwaters.

14 patients with more minor ailments were discharged and sent home due to the unsafe and unusable medical facilities. 26 patients with more urgent medical needs were transferred out of Bamnet Narong district today to other hospitals across the province, according to Hook 31.
Floods in the area damaged Bamnet Narong and Sukhothai hospitals, but Sukhothai hospitals avoided any evacuations.
Tropical depression Dianmu and a monsoon trough have caused heavy storms to hit 39 provinces in northern and central Thailand. Chaiyaphum was among the hardest-hit provinces, but other provinces also experienced flooding and damage.
Storms and flooding also hit Phetchabun this evening, with water rising so high on some roads that Road 21 was completely closed. As a result, officials have issued a flood warning for low-lying areas downstream of the Chao Phraya Dam, since water will be released in greater volumes in an effort to prepare for rain from storms in the north of Thailand this weekend.
