MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends the Russians visiting Thailand to stay away from flood zones and to select their routes carefully.
“The flood caused by long and heavy rains in the central and eastern areas of Thailand has led to a critical situation. Northern sectors of Bangkok are flooded, and there is a flood in some other neighborhoods of the Thai capital city. The local authorities are working on the provision of people’s security and strengthening the dams around the megalopolis,” the ministry said on Tuesday.
“The situation in the popular tourist centers – Pattaya, Phuket, Samui and Chiang – causes no worries. There is no flood hazard there now. The central international airport of Bangkok operates in the regular mode,” he said.
“No serious flood-induced accidents with Russian citizens have been reported,” the ministry said.
