An overflowing Ping River inundated many communities in Chiang Mai’s Muang district on Monday, including places like Chang Khlan, Charoen Prathet Road, Pa Phrao Nok and Wat Chaimongkol.

The Royal Irrigation Office 1 announced at 3.45am that the Ping River water level was rising due to heavy rains brought by the tropical storm Noru.

Arun Pinta, chief of the Chiang Mai Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office, said the water level at the P1 station near Nawarat Bridge had risen to 4.35 metres, nearly a metre above the critical point.
