Mountain run-off hit three villages and inundated a road in Chaiyaphum’s Muang district on Saturday morning.

Heavy overnight downpours triggered by tropical storm Doksuri caused the runoff from Phu Lankha mountains in Tad Tone Waterfall National Park. The deluge hit three villages in Tambon Nafai of Chaiyaphum’s Muang district in the morning.

In Moo 3 village alone, over 100 houes were inundated.

The floodwater also inundated the Chaiyaphum-Tad Tone road at kilometre marker 12 for about one kilometre, with the water level ranging from 30cm to one metre.

Police and district officials had to block the flooded section and divert motorists to use an alternative road.

The storm from Vietnam and Laos, which reached Nan as a depression storm at 10am Saturday, also unleashed heavy rains in several other parts of Chaiyaphum.
