Today, Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha, NCPO’s chief, attended the national administration meeting and expressed concerns on developments in water storage recently.

He ordered every sector to be prepared for any emergency situation and carefully monitor incremental changes in the water storage of every dam. The Chief directed the building of the Kaem Ling Project, and more dredging of canals for improved water flow.
