Bangkok Volunteers Fortify Levy as Thai Floods Shut Plants, Disrupt Supply

Leave a comment

Thousands of volunteers bolstered floodwalls in Bangkok, boosting confidence among officials tasked with protecting Thailand’s capital from a surge of water that has shut factories and disrupted supply chains across Asia.

“We have enough sandbags,” Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said yesterday in Sai Mai district, where about 2,000 soldiers, students, residents and city workers gathered to fill more than one million sandbags to strengthen a six-kilometer (3.7-mile) levy. “I am very happy with the response.”
