Patong, Phuket –

The Phuket Police are urging people to stay home and avoid heading to Patong due to traffic delays on many roads.

Our previous story:

Motorists who are heading from Kathu to the Patong Hill reported the damage at 3:30 P.M. this afternoon (October 19th). On one side of the road, the land started to slide which has brought down the road side surface and the guard rail.

A road leading to the Patong Hill from Kathu in Phuket is now being temporarily closed after it has started to collapse from a landslide.

The Phuket Provincial Police has announced the statement tonight (October 19th). The announcement stated, “If is is not necessary, please avoid heading to Patong. During this time there are traffic delays because of many motorists on a variety of roads from Patong to Chalong and to Surin Beach on both detour routes.”

Authorities are asking people to stay home unless there is an emergency.
