One person has sustained injuries after a landslide hit three houses in Thalang.
The Thalang District Chief Bancha Tanooin reported the landslide today (October 20th) in Soi Pae Tong Kee in the Sri Soonthorn sub-district.
Two houses have been damaged from the landslide. No injuries were found from these two houses. However, another house was totally destroyed from the landslide. One injured person was found at the destroyed house and taken to a local hospital.
The landslide has also blocked a local road. However, residents still have another road to go out from the village. Authorities have assisted locals with cleaning sand and soil from the area as well to prevent more landslides.
Many landslides have been reported across the island.
A house of a priest in Kathu has suffered from flash floods and landslides even as more rains hit Phuket overnight, complicating efforts to clean up from weekend flooding called the worst in decades by some local residents.
