Sangkhla district of Kanchanaburi hit by flood




More than 300 houses in Sangkhla district of Kanchanaburi province were half-submerged today,  stranding many residents after the district was lashed by heavy rains caused by depression Son Tinh.


Mr Somchai Wuththimonwittaya, president of Lowo tambon administration organization, who made an inspection trip to three flooded villages in Sangkhla district reported that water level averaged one metre, making it impossible for many residents to leave their houses while schools were also closed.


Officials set off in boats to remove debris washed by strong currents and got stuck  on bamboo poles which serve as supporting platform for the famous  Uttamanusorn wooden bridge or Saphan Mon.
