PATTAYA-11 April, 2015-[PattayaDailyNews] a summer storm had caused flooding in many areas. In addition, the flood caused a land slide which had damaged about 10 houses in Nern Plub Warn village. Later Mr.Chakorn Kanjawat-chief of Bang Lamung district- and Mr.Mai Chainit-mayor of Nong Prue district- were accompanied with officers to help the villagers.
On April 12th reporters inspected a village and they found that some villagers had been slightly injured by a land slide caused by heavy rain and some people were unable to get back into their homes because of the mud.
However, the officers had helped the villagers to dig out their homes using heavy machines.
Upon questioning Mrs.Boonmee Cherdram aged 60 she revealed that she was in her house with her grandson and it had been raining for many hours when suddenly a flood and landslide hit her house trapping them inside but luckily for them a neighbour helped them to safety.
Mr.Mai revealed that the officials intended to help the villagers by digging a canal to drain the water in another direction. The officials had provided apartments for the villagers whose homes were damaged until they are repaired. Also any vehicles which were also damaged will be checked by a technical team.
However, the officials intended to prosecute the land owner because of its poor design.
