Despite the Songkran party last year, the consequences of El Nino appear to be stronger. Thailand is increasingly suffering from the drought. In total this would cover a period of 7 years, but now the high point or rather the low point would have been reached.
Artificial handles are used to get rain. The Dutchman August Veraart (1881 – 1947) was the first to do tests to generate rain. These days enormous amounts of crystal silver iodide are used to “spray the clouds with airplanes. The small droplets of water that make up a cloud deposit on the crystals and then settle down. This technique is used by the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation in the N.O. of Thailand to replenish the reservoirs.
Where the drought is very critical, such as at the Ubonrat Dam in Khon Kaen and the Lam Takhong Dam in Nakhon Ratchasma, this "rain" has brought some relief. Satisfactory results were also achieved around the Pa Sak Jolasid Dam and in the Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
The army was deployed to provide water to certain areas. Perhaps these emergency measures would have been less necessary if measures had already been taken in time, 4 years ago. At that time, the 7-year drought period had already been announced and water management could have managed the amount of water better and with policy.
