High tides on Wednesday and Thursday are likely to trigger heavy flooding in #Saigon’s low lying areas, experts warn.

They say water levels in the Saigon River are set to rise 1.55 – 1.6 meters on these two days, with the tide peaking at 4-6 a.m. and again at 5-7 p.m.

The Southern Hydro-meteorological Center has warned that riverside and low-lying areas in the city, including the flood-prone Thao Dien in District 2 and District 7, home to the city’s largest expat communities, will get flooded.

High tides in late September and early October reached peaks of 1.77 – 1.8 m, heavily flooding many areas in the city, and the experts are saying it can happen again.

The previous high tide peak was 1.72 m in 2017.

For several years now, it has been a common story for residents of HCMC, the country’s biggest city and economic hub, that they have to wade through flooded streets with their vehicles and physically pour water out of their houses each time it rains heavily or high tides occur.

A major part of the city can lie below sea level in 50 years, turning it into a swamp, Laurent Umans, First Secretary for Water and Climate Change at the Netherlands Embassy in Vietnam, has warned. – VNExpress

Thai son cuts MOTHER up, flushes down toilet

Thai media reported on a horrific murder in south west #Bangkok in which a Thai son cut up his mother and stuffed her in the freezer section of their fridge.

In addition police found parts of the victim’s breasts in the toilet.

The son turned a gun on himself after a work colleague had gone to the house to inquire about her friend. Instead of finding her sick she found her in five pieces in the fridge.

The son has now died after shooting himself in the head.

On Sunday evening Yuree, 42, an employee at an auto finance company had been conversing over the phone as normal with her friend at 8 pm.

But she didn’t show up to work so the colleague went to her house in Soi Tha Kham 28, sub-soi 6, Samae Dam, Bang Khun Thian.

There she met her friend’s son Sira, 20, who was in tears and said his mother was not home. The colleague thought this was strange as her car was outside the house.

She investigated and found the fridge ajar. Inside the freezer section was her friend in five pieces – the head, the torso, arms and legs.

National police spokesman Pol Col Krissana Pattanacharoen said that she ran out of the house in terror to contact police.

Then a shot rang out.

Sira had shot himself in the head. Tha Kham police found him still alive with a gun next to his body.

He was taken to Nakhon Thon Hospital where he died later.

Police took a knife and gloves into evidence and sealed off the house. Later they revealed finding parts of the dead woman’s breasts in the toilet.

Police are interviewing relatives and colleagues.

Thai media Sanook reported that the son had been suffering from mental illness. They mentioned paranoia and depression among the symptoms.

The mother and son lived together at the house. The son was a second year student at university. – Sanook

Thai kids bunk school and go to the movies

Naew Na reported that large numbers of school children were busted for playing truant after a #cinema group offered cut price seats in all their theaters nationwide yesterday. 

Major Cineplex Group offered seats for just 25 baht to mark their 25th anniversary yesterday, also the 25th of the month.

But the promotion seems to have backfired after Thai school children bunked off school to go to the movies.

In one story Naew Na reported on a Facebook post from “Benz Chanon” who commented that the escalators could barely cope with the numbers of people.

Most were schoolchildren, students or parents with children.

In a second story the inevitable had happened – the authorities were rounding up children for truancy. – Naew Na
