In Phuket town, areas along the Bypass Road (in front of Vinich House), in front of the Super Cheap store on the lane towards Koh Kaew, in front of the Muslim Wittaya School in Koh Kaew on the lane towards Phuket Town, Yaowarat Road in Soi Paniang and Dibuk Road, Old Phuket Town – at the beginning of Soi Rommanee – are currently inundated.

The Phuket Municipality has sent a team to closely monitor and measure the level of flood as well as support the traffic and help people who are suffering from the flash floods. The water pump station is also closely monitoring rubbish from the canals and will be continuously removing blockages to allow flow into the drains.

Phuket residents, who have an urgent problem from flooding, can contact the hotline 1132 – the Phuket Municipality’s Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.

Meanwhile in Thalang district, in the Paklok area, a big tree fell crossing the road making a long traffic jam while other roads in the area are also suffering from flood.

The flash flood from Soi Patak 18 has caused flooding around Karon area and the roads around Chalong Circle are flooded as well.
