Thirty homes and hundreds of rai of rice fields and farmlands in three tambons – Lahan Sai, Samrong Mai and Khok Wan – were inundated, according to Samrong Mai mayor Thanawuth Srikimkaew.
Several roads, including a 200-metre-long section of Khok Ta Doung-Santisuk Road in Samrong Mai, were submerged in up to 50 centimetres water.
Local officials were dispatched to provide help and survey the damage, Thanawuth said.
He said he expected everything to return to normal in one or two days provided there was no more rainfall.
Given more storms, officials would prepare a plan to expedite the draining of floodwaters and prepare for possible evacuation of at-risk residents.
