Three days and three nights of heavy rain with runoff from high ground left much of Nakhon Sri Thammarat in the south of Thailand devastated yesterday. 
 
Flooding as deep as 2 meters was reported in what was said to be the worst in 30 years.

Government offices, schools and hospitals were all inundated and traffic was brought to a standstill.
 
Many vehicles that could not be moved to higher ground were damaged. 
 
Particularly affected was Route 41 southbound and heading towards Bangkok. A five kilometer stretch from Khao Pha Thong to the Nong Wa intersection was under 1 meter of water with huge tailbacks.

One video posted on Chumthang Thungsong (ชุมทางทุ่งสง) showed two people on a motorcycle being swept into a klong before they were helped by friends. Their vehicle just disappeared in the flood waters, reported Daily News.

Breaks my heart seeing this. I'm hundreds of kilometers from NST but seeing these images hits me hard.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the brave residents of NST and their families.
