Authorities declared Narathiwat a disaster zone late Thursday evening after almost the entire area of this southern province was hit by flooding triggered by four consecutive days of heavy rains. 

The announcement was issued in 12 of the province’s 13 districts including Muang Narathiwat, Chanae, Cho Airong, Rangae, Rueso, Si Sakhon, Sukhirin, Sungai Kolok, Sungai Padi, Tak Bai, Waeng and Yi-ngo.

Bacho is the only district that is not flooded.
