Regional Irrigation Office 12 warned governors of Uthai Thani, Chai Nat, Singburi, Ang Thong, Suphan Buri, Ayutthaya and Lopburi to prepare for overflows from the rivers.
The flood warning was issued after water at the Chao Phraya Dam in Chai Nat rose to critical levels following heavy monsoon rain upstream.
Residents, farmers and businesses located close to the Chao Phraya and Sakaekrang rivers were warned to monitor the flood situation closely.
Water levels in the Sakae Krang in Uthai Thani have risen sharply, prompting residents of riverside communities to move their houseboats and fishing gear in preparation for flooding.
