National parks across the country have been temporarily closing their waterfalls due to overflows. In August, the water level in Khao Yai National Park’s Nang Rong Waterfall rose to over half a metre, submerging a bridge.

At another national park in the province, water levels rose to a level not seen in years. The water levels at Wang Takrai park in the Sarika subdistrict were between 50 centimetres and 1 metre.
