Personally I'm getting a bit concerned, the canals haven't been kept clear in our area and the water has risen very high, to within a couple of feet of the top, I think if we get much more we might be in a little bit of trouble. Another problem is the damage it's done to the roads, we already had some pot holes, these have multiplied and got much deeper, fingers crossed.

I live in Nong Hin, Loei. We have had several months worth of rain in just the past several days. We are at about 1,000 feet above sea level here, so no major problems. I'd guess that some lower areas are under water and the rain doesn't look like it is finished.

Its been raining on and off about every 30 minutes today until 6pm when the heavens just opened. No wind, no T&L just huge amounts of water falling. Thank the Lord I was not driving. Lasted about 45 minutes. Seen some of the local farmers getting prepared for rice planting today. Thats nearly a month earlier than last year.
