Flooding along the Buriram-Nakorn Ratchasima connection road has begun to subside, with vehicles returning to use, after flood water cut off travel for 5 consecutive days.

Reports yesterday evening indicated that flooding along a main road connecting Buriram province and Nakorn Ratchasima province has begun to alleviate, especially at a crucial bridge crossing in Lum Plai Mat (ลำปลายมาศ) district. The bridge was previously submerged in over a meter of water, completely disallowing any vehicles to pass. The entire roadway had been closed off for 5 consecutive days until yesterday when some amount of traffic was able to return.

Highway authorities however, have posted signs warning commuters to beware of the bridge which may have receive damage from the flood waters. Authorities have been dispatched to inspect the stability of the bridge. Travelers are urged to proceed with caution nonetheless.
