Flash floods, landslides warned in southern Thailand


21:03, November 22, 2011

BANGKOK, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Thailand's National Disaster Warning Center on Tuesday warned over possible flash floods and landslides in the southern region during Nov. 22 to 24.

The eastern side of the southern region including Nakhon Si Thammarat, Pattalung, Songkhla, Pattani and Narathiwat provinces were among those to be lashed severely by heavy rains.

Flash floods and landslides are very likely in those provinces, according to the center's prediction. Authorities in risk-prone areas were directed to get ready and closely follow up information issued by the center and the Information and Communications Technology Ministry.

Since late July, the whole country, except for the southern region, has suffered from the most severe inundation in over half a century. Some 13 million people across the nation have been affected while more than 600 people were killed.
