Hundreds of households suffer after flood water inundates Sri Racha district last night

Sri Racha, Chonburi –

Flood water reached various heights after heavy rain battered the province constantly for two hours on Saturday, September 10th, damaging hundreds of houses and buildings.

According to local reporters, the heavy rain in Sri Racha district at around 9:00 P.M. caused an accumulation of water which could not be functionally drained and flooded the area.

Overflowing water reportedly reached as high as almost 30 centimeters high in some areas of the district, causing traffic difficulty among small vehicles last night.

Meanwhile, at the Ruen Rom Village of Surasak Subdistrict, the floodwater reportedly reached 50 to 60 centimeters as the area was low and located near a canal. Many electrical appliances were damaged. Hundreds of households were in trouble and some of them had to elevate their belongings.

Apart from constant rainfall, one of the causes of the flooding was also large waste found floating in the water and obstructing the drainage system.

Ekasit Amchaon, member of the Council of Provincial Administrative Organization of Chonburi Province, Sriracha District, arrived at the scene to assist the villagers and help remove the debris and wastes obstructing the drainage system.
