If only somehow they could pump all the flood water out to the reservoir instead of out into the bay . 

could use water tankers !!!

Lol - friend of mine was on his way to open his shop this afternoon and couldn't get to the North Pattaya intersection.

Looks like the South Pattaya intersection isn't the only one that needs some work on the pumps !
 

Taken just after 3pm today.

Widespread flooding but more rain to the North than the South. I was stuck in Big-CX for a good while as it poured and I only had the bike with me. I was fortunate to make it home really, but it did involve a worrying ride with my feet lifted on the north end of the railway line bypass at the tunnel. (Certainly didn't try going through it). I bet there had been 5 inches (12cm) of rain at the house and the damned power was still off at 4pm. It had been off since  09.30 and why I went out in the first place.

Yet all this flooding occurs on when it rains and has been doing so for years !!!!

You keep building on land for years and years that normally soaks the water away , and you don't lay additional drainage what do you expect.

It's a pity the water isn't diverted as efficiently as the money for drainage projects.

Don't do their job and then ask for patience. Pity the locals don't vote those incompetents out.

I don't actually think these people are voted in , I think they are given the job by a relative ( allegedly ) . But I could be wrong.

No local elections for years. All appointed by the Junta.

They used to have elections (for the Mayor of Pattaya). The current Mayor (Sontaya Kunplome) was appointed by the PM last year, to replace the Mayor the PM had appointed a few months earlier. The last elected Mayor was the younger brother of the current Mayor (and the Mayor of Bang Saen, Narongchai Kunplome, is another brother).

The last election was in June 2012, when Itthiphol Kunplome (the younger brother) won a second 4 year term.

Exactly, his brother did very well out of doing nothing about anything for many years, he is now High up in government at ministerial level - it's who you know, they are obviously not greedy and like to share! :thumbsup:
