Runoff hits 100 houses in Trat

By The Nation




Some 100 houses in Trat province were flooded when their villages in the Borai district were hit by mountain runoff early on Saturday, officials said.

Local villagers and officials said several villages in Tambon Nonsee and Tambon Bor Ploy’s downtown were hit by the runoff at around 1.30am.


Most villagers were still asleep when the water arrived so they could not move their belongings upstairs in time as a result their electrical appliances were damaged.


Following the inundation, the 14th Mobile Army Development Unit in Trat and the Sawang Boon Thammasathan of Trat sent officials and 10 boats to help the affected villagers.


Several main roads leading to Borai district were flooded, hampering the aid operation.


Payom Sanowsang, 52, said she was woken up by neighbours and found that the ground floor of her house was flooded.
