Mostly lower pong river flood status , Khon Kaen Isaan 31.10.11

As you can see water on the ring road around Khon Kaen is subsiding, which is of some joy if your home is now only 2 meters underwater and the government has told you that you have another month living alongside a highway. One access road into town that was previously closed has reopened, and some of the villages west of town have been able to move back into their homes. In one village you can see that the wall built to protect the village from the Pong River actually worked, but the village was flooded from another direction.
Along Road 2183, the road is now clear of water, but many many kilometers of farmland still inundated.
