As Bangkok is being flooded now, the South is also preparing for the rainy season ahead. Some people have brought all their belongings up to the second floor while others have already stocked on food. If you go to the hypermarkets now, for sure you won't be able to find rice, eggs, noodles or sardines.
Just the other day, the municipal has delivered sand and sacks to a number of places. This is for the residents to make their own sandbags and hopefully to protect the houses from being flooded. So, whether it's going to flood or not at least everyone is already prepared.
