Heavy rainfall caused flash flooding in several areas of Pattaya yesterday, October 21st, particularly on Sukhumvit Road, Soi Khao Talo, Beach Road, and Soi Buakhao.
Water levels reached up to 60-70 centimeters in some areas, making it impossible for motorcycles and small cars to pass through.
The flooding began after nearly an hour of heavy rainfall and thunder. The disaster caused significant disruption to traffic and damage to houses and businesses located alongside the road. However, the water level gradually receded after the rain stopped for about half an hour.
On October 10th, the runoff from heavy rain badly eroded Pattaya Beach. This event left many long and deep scours on the beach, necessitating city intervention for repairs.
