Ayutthaya told to brace for flooding

BMA insists capital is prepared

  • Published: 28 Sept 2013

The Royal Irrigation Department has warned of more flooding in Ayutthaya and its downstream areas, with the Pasak River set to rise by up to 1.5m Sunday.

The authority needs to release more water from two dams upstream.

Ayutthaya Irrigation Office director Mitree Pitinanond said he had been informed the Rama VI dam in Tha Rua district will release more water, as the upstream Pasak Jolasid dam in Lop Buri is almost at full capacity and has to increase its own discharge.

The Pasak Jolasid dam is now at 93% of its water storage capacity.

The release of more water from the dams comes after warnings of more rainfall over the next few days.

The Meteorological Department Saturday issued a warning for people in 10 provinces in the Central Plains region and the East to brace for heavy rain triggered by a monsoon.

The warning told people in Nakhon Sawan, Uthai Thani, Lop Buri, Saraburi, Nakhon Nayok, Prachin Buri, Sa Kaeo, Chachoengsao, Chanthaburi and Trat to brace for heavy rain triggered by a monsoon trough over the next few days.

The department also warned of more rain in the Northeast on Tuesday as tropical storm Wutip in the upper South of the China Sea is predicted to make landfall in Vietnam on that day. Continue reading

Sydney Seasons, Steak House & Restaurant Surin

The write up is good, but it does not say how good this place really is. The décor is typically Thai, however the food is not and the beer and other drinks are icy cold. Very good Thai food is available, so is pasta, their specialty is steak. I have dined there many times and I know that it is the best steak in Thailand.  The cook trained in cooking college in Sydney so he knows what westerners like. So if you are in Surin do not miss this place.

Open days
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
From 12 noon till late.
For lunch and dinner.

That’s all for now, until next time,

Surin is a town in Thailand capital of Surin province

Sawasdee Krab,

Surin is a town in Thailand capital of Surin province

Surin is a town in Thailand, capital of Surin province. It is the site of the annual Surin Elephant Round up. As of 2012, Surin had a population of 48,582

The first syllable Sur- originates from the Sanskrit word Sura meaning God (of. Asura), and the word In-tar from Sanskrit is Indra, Hence the name of the province literally means Lord Indra.

In the north of the province is the valley of the Mun River, a tributary of the Mekong. To the south of the province is the Dongrek mountain chain, which also forms the boundary to Cambodia. The central and northern parts of the province are undulating flood plains.

With the collapse of the Khmer Empire in the 13th century Surin province faded from history. It is in the 18th century that it re-emerges. At this time a Kuay local leader named Chiangpum became the royally appointed ruler of the region. According to legend he presented a rare white elephant to the Chao Phaya Chakri, future King Rama I. In

gratitude, Chiangpum was awarded the royal title Luang Surin Phakdi and appointed the village headman. When Rama I became the Thai monarch, he appointed Luang Surin Phakdi as the province’s governor. In 1763 the village was moved to the location of the modern city of Surin, and was upgraded to a city with the name Muang Prathai Saman. There is a local legend that this move was due to better water supplies at the new site. Also, that the original location of the town was at Muang Thi, approximately fifthteen kilometres to the east of the modern city. In 1786, the city’s name was changed to Surin in honour of its governor. Continue reading
