Flooding again at Thai industrial estates – not as bad as 2011 but impacting Amata Nakorn, the largest industrial estate in Thailand



Excerpts from the Bangkok Post (Oct 9, 2013):

More than 700 factories in the Amata Nakorn Industrial Estate in Chon Buri have been cautioned to monitor the floods closely, as they may face a repeat of the 2011 deluge.

Amata Nakorn, the biggest industrial estate in Thailand, serves nearly 700 factories with a total area of 20,000 rai. It has a combined manufacturing investment of 1.2 trillion baht with around 400,000 employees.

Excerpt from the Malaysian Insider (Oct 8, 2013):

Authorities say the floodwater is moving in a different direction from that in 2011, when water flowed towards Bangkok, the capital, from Thailand’s north.

“It is heading towards eastern provinces, so there’s a chance that industrial parks that were not hit last time could face flooding this time around,” said Chartchai Promlert, chief of Thailand’s Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
