PHUKET:-- Too many cables hanging off a single power pole have been blamed for high-voltage power cables arcing and sending out intense sparks in Kamala today (Jan 14), raising concerns of people in the area suffering electric shocks.

 

The alarm was raised by passers-by who noticed sparks coming from the power pole, along the coastal road around the headland south of Kamala Bay, and notified Akanay Kongboon of the Kamala Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor).

 

Mr Akanay in turn posted a public warning at 3:52pm urging people to keep clear of the power pole and arrived at the scene with rescue workers to direct traffic around the sparking hazard.

Poor insulation, high humidity...very poor installation, fitted by a man in a "songcran" shirt and an old pair of pliers? 🤨
