Factors Affecting the Occurrence of Floods and the Adaptation of People in Lahanam and Thakhamlian Villages, Songkhone District, Savannakhet Province
Abstract: The objectives of this study are to study the factors of the flood and the flood adaptation methods of villagers in Lahanam and Thakhamlian villages. The interview has been conducted with 86 samples from this study. This study investigated flooding factors, the relationship between location and house type, and the flood depth and time of flooding. The study found that the main factors contributing to flooding are strong storms with heavy rain and low plain land alongside the Xebanghieng River bank. Even though houses located near or far from the Xebanghieng river bank have the same flooded depth and time, villa houses or two - floor houses have the same flooded depth and time. The villagers have adapted to living with flooding in many ways, including agriculture, housing, and livelihood.
