Several main roads in Pattaya were flooded and became almost impassable after last night’s storm that struck the city for an hour with heavy rains and wind.
The storm that hit Pattaya around 10 p.m. last night, September 21st, left many main roads, such as South Pattaya Road, Soi Buakhao Road, Sukhumvit Road, and Beach Road, submerged under 20 cm to 1 meter of floodwater, according to The Pattaya News reporters.
Many popular alleys in the city also encountered flooding, which crept into roadside venues and forced tourists to unpleasantly walk in floodwater back to their hotels. Most riders were also affected by the flooded routes and had to wait for the waters to recede to continue with their journey.
However, some tourists were seen comically dancing and singing in the rain in certain bar areas, as if they were already accustomed to the occurrence.
The Mayor and city officials kept constant updates during the heavy storm and subsequent flooding and stated that after the rains finished flooding quickly leveled out across the city. Water pumps were also used in and around Beach Road to control the level of flooding.
The mayor and his team were also out this morning, September 22nd, inspecting storm damage and clogged drains and quickly instructing relevant agencies and teams to recover and assist those who needed help.
