More rain until this Friday – parts of Krabi flooded

Flooding has hit several provinces yesterday morning in the wake of heavy downpours in parts of the country.

In Krabi’s Khao Phanom province, several roads were also flooded. In front of the Ban Khok Klang School, floodwater was up to 40 centimetres deep. Emergency responders helped locals move their belongings to higher ground out of concern that the waters would continue to rise in the face of ongoing rain.

In Chiang Mai province, floodwater was more than 50 centimetres deep in front of Pratukom Market and the province’s college of dramatic arts, even though local officials were urgently pumping out water.

“Small vehicles cannot use the Wualai Road in this area for the time being,” according to Chiang Mai city’s deputy mayor, Lt-General Panu Rojanawasu. He said he hoped the situation would return to normal soon.
