Thanyaburi prison evacuated

October 24, 2011

More than 1,000 inmates of Pathum Thani’s Thanyaburi prison on Rangsit-Nakhon Nayok road have already been evacuated to prisons in Kampaengphet, Tak and Phitsanulok for safety reasons, the prison’s commander Thawee Duangthamma said on Monday. About 1,000 remaining inmates were also being transferred to other prisons, he added. Mr Thawee said  the decision to evacuate was made when the water level in front of the prison reached  80 centimetres, and the water is still rising. The  prison’s floodwall is only one metre high.
