Heavy monsoon rains brought misery to villagers in the mountainous northern province of Phayao on Wednesday, when flash floods swept through Muang district.

About 50 households were flooded as run-off from surrounding mountains swamped villages.

Residents of Tambon Mae Sai said the water arrived at 5am and rose very fast.

The main village roads were about 50 centimetres under water and villagers had to rush to move their things upstairs.
