Torrential May downpour turns Bang Saray into riverLegacy

Relentless rain wreaked havoc across Bang Saray, transforming streets into rivers and causing chaos for locals.

Since the crack of dawn yesterday, unyielding rain transformed Bang Saray in Sattahip District into a watery maze, inundating Sukhumvit Road and nearby areas. The deluge overwhelmed drainage systems, plunging streets into chaos and triggering severe traffic snarls.

The downpour hit Sukhumvit Road hardest, with water pooling from Pattaya all the way to Sattahip, creating a nightmare for motorists. The result? Gridlock, as vehicles crawled along in a desperate bid to navigate the flooded streets.

But in the face of adversity, Bang Saray Subdistrict Municipality sprang into action, deploying water pumps to battle the rising tide, reported Pattaya Mail.

After efforts lasting one to two hours, the streets gradually returned to normalcy, offering respite from the aquatic onslaught.

In related news, torrential rains have battered Si Racha, a district in the province of Chon Buri, causing widespread flooding and damage.

The downpour, which lasted for hours, overwhelmed drainage systems and caused water levels to rise rapidly, inundating homes and submerging vehicles. The deluge struck at 10am last Tuesday, May 7, catching many residents off-guard.

Cars and motorcycles were seen partially submerged, and numerous electrical appliances were reportedly damaged as floodwaters poured into single-story homes, particularly in the Soi Roong Ped area.

Just less than two months prior, Sri Racha suffered two hours of relentless downpours on March 19. This torrential rainfall was the catalyst for a series of flash floods that wreaked havoc across the district. The intersection beneath the Nong Yai Bu Bridge, situated in the Nong Kho area of Nong Kham sub-district, was one of the worst-hit areas.

The water levels had risen alarmingly, reaching almost 1 metre. This rendered the intersection impassable for small vehicles and motorcycles, causing significant disruption to the regular flow of traffic.
