Not sure why but phone lines did not work last night. We are still safe and dry.
Our [gated community] has sent out email stating that the flood waters- if breached- will come on Saturday night. Their staff is on duty 24/7 as they have asked their staff to stay in the complex with their families and they will provide 3 meals a day to staff and families-- they have also stopped watering the plants etc, so that the ground is really dry. They have dug canals outside the community, emptied [a nearby waterbody] by atleast 5 meters - my friends think that the fish are now dying because there is not enough water/oxygen. [Water] levels are definitely low [in the water-body]. They have advised residents to stock up on water and essentials and to use water filters if we have them. Government has increased the quantity of chlorine in the water so just boiling tap water should also be ok. -
our neighborhood grocery store still has food- like bread etc but no bottled water. Our water delivery guy and milk delivery guy came yesterday and we are stocked up with decent quantities. They also mentioned that we will have electricity unless the main supply line located outside the community gets flooded. We have a clinic just outside our community and their pharmacy is still stocked up. We have also filled our 2 bath tubs with water for general use and fill the third one our Sat morning. Thai government is thinking of blasting off 5 roads to create more avenues for water to drain through- Not sure the science behind it.
I do not think our community will see lots of water- may be 50 cm- 1m high - so about knee deep in worst scenario but our community is very well protected- so don't think that is a concern. Major concern will be no electricity--
I think it is best to stay put as friends in downtown area are reporting no bottled water is available and they are boiling water for drinking.
