Southerners evacuate homes as floods hit Songkhla, Surat Thani

By The Nation




Two days of heavy rain across the South has flooded residential areas in Songkhla and Surat Thani provinces, leading many to evacuate their homes.


Residents in low-lying areas of the provinces began moving to higher ground on Tuesday as water levels rose quickly.


Hat Yai Airport in Songkhla was flooded by the heavy rain, while some schools in the district had to be closed and farmers’ fields were damaged.


Flooding hit a total of 10 districts in Songkhla with Muang, Singhanakhon, Rattaphum, Khuan Niang and Hat Yai suffering the worst damage.


Meanwhile, residential districts of Surat Thani were inundated by flash flooding from mountain runoff as storms lashed the province.


Surat Thani’s Marine and Coastal Resources Department is aiding victims and has warned boats not to leave shore.

Another rough spell for southern Thailand, and without tourists to help it will be

even more dire for the tourist areas. The Thais do not go where the weather is bad so

domestic tourism will not be helpful. Good luck Phukets and south Thailand

you are getting this extended bad weather when you certainly do not need it.
