Thammasat Rangsit campus flooded as dyke breached
Pathum Thani's Thammasat University Rangsit Campus was flooded after the earthen dyke in front of the nearby Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) was breached early yesterday. However, there has been no evacuation of 3,800 flood victims from the university's Gymnasium 1 yet.

AIT was hit by two-metre-deep floods, which also spilled over to the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) and caused a 20cm-deep flood at Yungthong and Talad Wicha roads and Thammasat Primary School. Officials used off-road trucks to evacuate residents in the athletics dormitories to safer ground. Some 340 soldiers were repairing the busted floodwalls of AIT and NSTDA and should be able to control the floods, although they would have to be on watch around the clock for any more cracks. GMC trucks and flat-bottomed boats are ready to help with evacuation if necessary.
