BANGKOK, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Monday visited Thailand's North-Eastern flood-stricken provinces of Yasothon and Ubon Ratchathani to inspect relief measures and provide morale support to flood victims.
Prayut was accompanied by Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda to the two most seriously hit hard by tropical storms Podul and Kajiki since the beginning of September.
Prayut and Anupong met with flood victims who were residing temporarily in temples situated on higher grounds.
Anupong said that despite Podul and Kajiki moving away from Thailand, the flood situation still persists in North, North-Eastern and Central Thailand.
Therefore, the government will continue to dispatch teams to help transport villagers and provide medical treatments, food and water for flood victims, Anupong said.
He also said that the Ministry of Interior has assigned provincial administrative units to assess the damage once the flooding subside in order to provide compensations to the flood victims.
