PHUKET:  Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew has ordered officials to seal off the area where a small landslide occurred beside a luxury home in Rassada yesterday (Oct 13), and take whatever action necessary to ensure a further landslide does not occur at the same site, threatening residents living below.

 

Sophon Thongsai, chief of the Phuket Provincial office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM-Phuket), said Rassada Municipality informed his office of the landslide at about 1:30pm.

 

The landslide occurred at a plot along Soi Yaruen Uthit, in Rommai Chailay Village, where a large house had been built.

555, I would guess protecting residents below is not the motive, I wonder who owns the property
