Heavy rain across Phuket all night and until this morning caused flooding in many areas.
The rain hit since last night and continued until this morning (October 16th). Many areas flooded which are usually flooding after heavy rain in Phuket such as:
on Bangla Road and many parts in Patong, Samkong, Rassada, Phuket Old Town, Kamala, Kathu, Koh Kaew, Baan Pasak, Baan Tha Rue in Thalang and on Thep Kasattri Road in Thalang and Chalong.
The flooding did not effect the traffic as there were not many motorists at night time. However, many areas are still suffering from the floods in the morning which paralyzed many main roads. The rain has continued throughout the day.
