Heavy rain wreaks havoc in Pattaya, damages tourists’ vehicles

Pattaya —

Pattaya residents and tourists had to endure floods that damaged their property and vehicles in many areas after heavy rain wreaked the city yesterday.

A downpour struck most parts of Pattaya at 2 PM and lasted for more than an hour on Monday, The Pattaya News’s reporters reported. The low areas, such as the road along the railway, Soi Khao Talo, Soi Wat Tham Samakhi, and Khao Talo Road, were flooded, with the water level ranging from 30 cm to 1 m.

A foreign tourist’s car stuck on the railway road was half submerged, forcing the male tourist to flee his vehicle through a car window. Pattaya city workers helped tow his car to a garage for repair after the rain stopped.

Residents’ property was also damaged by the floods. Some locals told The Pattaya News that floods were nearly certain to occur if the rain lasted for more than one or two hours.
