Pattaya: Heavy rains leave resort under water, roads impassable

Daily News reported that two hours of torrential rain in Pattaya early yesterday afternoon left many roads impassable.

 

Soi Khao Noi, Pattaya Sai 3 and Beach Road all had flooding to a depth of 30-50 cms and serious traffic problems. 

 

Elsewhere in low lying areas it was even worse - 50-100cms - meaning cars and motorbikes were pointless.

One black car was abandoned by its driver and passenger on the road next to the railway, said the media, after the flood water lapped the roof.

Still it was pretty ferocious; scary too.  I just got past Kao Noi Canal before it came down.

Yeah I was out earlier on Soi Khao Noi, and the railway line bypass rd, and fortunately back home ahead of all this.

Agree, over the last 30+ years countless major projects, many billions of Baht spent, nothing achieved. Some heads should have rolled many times but of course there's no checking, no accountability and probably won't be until the likes of Thanathorn and his replacement get into the PM etc., roles.

 

But of course there seems to be other very big influences, not only national politics, which won't in the foreseeable future allow thanathorn and his followers to make any gains towards power. 

 

Sad for Thailand.

I dont follow Governments her but like your other views.

It was up there for the heaviest rain in awhile in a short period.

 

But, I differ with some on this.  Yes, it floods here badly, but I have been in some of the most modern cities in the world that flood and stay flooded for a period of time.  When it seems to rain a foot in one hour and continues for 4 hours not much can be done.

Sunny clear and beautiful so far today.
