Kamala, Phuket residents suffering from flash floods, local government giving support

Kamala –

Residents in Kamala in Phuket are still suffering from flash floods when sand and soil invaded their homes.

Heavy rain across Phuket all night and until this morning caused flooding in many areas on Sunday (October 16th).

Many areas in Kamala, Kathu district have been damaged from the flash floods since Sunday. Yesterday (October 17th) the Phuket Vice Governor Amnuay Pitsuwan and Mr. Jutha Dumluck, the Tambon Administrative Organisation Chief visited residents in Baan Bangwan, Baan Na Nua, Baan Nok Lay, Baan Kok Yang, Baan Huan Kwuan and Baan Naka.

Authorities have assisted residents for cleaning their houses where sand and soil have invaded their homes and nearby areas.

Kamala residents are continuing to rely on the government for further assistance as many of their homes have become uninhabitable temporarily due to the floods.

The Royal Thai Navy has also been assisting those in need across Phuket.
