Krabi flooding swamps homes, collapses road

Flash floods triggered by heavy downpours swamped homes in Krabi’s Plai Phraya district on Saturday night and damaged public infrastructure.

 

The strong current burst drainpipes under the just-completed Khao Tor-Phanom Road, causing a 50-by-five-metre section to collapse. 

 

The gaping hole backed up traffic on what has become a major route to Phuket. 

 

As of publication time, with floodwaters subsiding, homeowners had begun cleaning up and local administrative bodies were assessing damage.

Got to love the Thai engineer design and build. They choose the cheapest design and materials. It looks beautiful when it is first finished but shortly afterwards it's a wreck, just like Pattaya beach.

Looks like the beginning of a road side swimming pool.

How cool for the locals to get it just before Songkran, just fill it up and  :partytime2:
