Flooding persists in four northeastern provinces and heavy rain is forecast to continue until Sunday in many areas, including Bangkok, before temperatures drop by 3-5 degrees Celsius in upper Thailand from Sunday to Thursday.

A total of 18,063 people in 45 locations were evacuated in Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani provinces. Most of them were in Ubon Ratchathani, where 17,901 people in 42 locations were moved, said Mr Chaiyaphol.

Two recently departed storms — Padul andKajiki — have triggered flash floods, runoff and mudslides that ravaged 32 provinces nationwide since Aug 29. A total of 419,768 households in 7,172 villages in 183 districts have been affected.

A total of 4,943 houses were damaged.
