KRABI: -- Flood and landslide warnings have been issued for Krabi residents after downpours affected at least 50 people over the weekend.

On Monday, Klonghin OrBorTor President Sila Saiyid inspected an area where about 20 houses have been flooded at Baan Tung Kor, in addition to 400-500 rai of palm and rubber plantations. 

“Heavy rains caused excess water to collect in the area,” said Mr Sila. “We have temporarily provided boats for locals to commute in, but our long-term plan is to dig a canal.”

The road leading into the area was cut off, and some houses were inundated with meter-high floodwater.

I had a nice stay in Krabi a couple of years ago.  It is an interesting destination

and so is Tang, for a couple weeks of your vacation. Good food,  great scenery

and places to explore.
