Rising river levels pose increasing threat

Persistent rainfall from northern to central regions will see river levels continue to rise, the Meteorology and Hydrology Department has warned.
The department said the level of the Xebangfay River in Xaybangfay district, Khammuan province now measures 19.14 metres, which is above the danger zone of 18.50 metres. This puts the Xebangfay bridge in Mahaxay district at particular risk.
