Thailand: sudden flood in Pattaya

Heavy rains hit Pattaya, causing flooding in the countryside and on major urban roads in Pattaya and Banglamung. As a result of the flooding, many cars were stuck on the roads, and the height of flood waters in some areas reached 1 meter.

Heavy rains hit Pattaya for 5 hours, starting in the morning rush hour around 7:30 am and unabated until noon in most areas. The collected water hit roads throughout the city and surrounding areas, from a depth of 30 centimeters in some areas to flooding up to one meter high on some Pattaya roads.

Sukhumvit, Soi Khao Talo in the Nong Pru tambone and behind the Samakee Tham temple near the railway were deeply flooded. Houses on Soi Khao Talo were filled with water to a depth of one meter, and many residents were unable to save their belongings, which got wet and deteriorated.

Road delays have led traffic police and local police to do double duty, regulating traffic and helping people stranded in high flood waters. Several vehicles were also stuck in deep waters.

When the rain finally subsided, it took about 2 hours for the waters to recede and the flood emergency subsided and traffic in Pattaya was back to normal by evening.
