Heavy Rain Causes Terrible Flash Floods in Sri Racha, Chonburi

Sri Racha, Chonburi —

Two hours of heavy rainfall triggered devastating flash floods in several areas of Sri Racha district, Chonburi province, on Tuesday, March 19th, 2024.

A video of the flooding can be found here.

According to The Pattaya News reporters, the most significant flooding occurred at the intersection under the Nong Yai Bu Bridge in the Nong Kho area of Nong Kham sub-district. Water levels rose to nearly 1 meter, totally blocking small cars and motorcycles from passing.

The Pattaya News reporters observed motorcycles submerged in the floodwaters, forcing motorists to push them through the current. This resulted in significant traffic congestion in the area.

Similar situations unfolded in other parts of Sri Racha. Heavy rain pounded the Pinthong Road area in Mab Aeng, Nong Kham sub-district, terribly flooding the entire road. Water cascaded from nearby hills also added to the devastation, leading to several cars nearly being submerged to the roof.

Flooding was also reported at the entrance of Supalai Park Ville. Due to the low-lying nature of the area, water inundated the road, making passage extremely difficult.

Several provinces of Thailand experienced heavy rainfall this morning, March 20th, as well including Bangkok.
