Majority of S'poreans stranded in Hat Yai are safe: MFA

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Foreign Affairs Ministry said it was in contact with the majority of Singaporeans stranded in the Hat Yai floods.


Thai villagers wade through floodwater during floods in the southern Thai city of Hat Yai.

Though isolated because of the high waters in the last two days, some have used online means like Facebook to keep in touch.

MFA said all Singaporeans who made contact are safe and some are already out of Hat Yai.

The Ministry will work with Thai authorities to help any other Singaporeans stranded in the southern Thai city.

Commenting on rice prices, the Singapore General Rice Importers Association (SGRIA) said it is keeping prices at the pre-flood levels for now despite a 5 to 10 per cent increase.

Singapore imports 65 per cent of its rice from Thailand but it is not clear how much of it is from Hat Yai.

"Even though rice prices have increased, the Singapore currency has been strong, so we are able to cover some of our cost increase," said SGRIA Chairman Andrew Tan.

However, prices may change, Mr Tan said, citing Thailand's weather as a factor.
