In Phrao district the Mae Ngad river overflowed following a rapid rise in levels and has caused damage to many villages in the area. Houses, businesses as well as farms and orchards have been badly damaged

Authorities are currently evaluating the extent of the damages and are closely monitoring the situation as they fear levels will rise again as rains continue to fall.
