PATTAYA – October 23,2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 5.30 pm. A journalist reported that as well as heavy pouring rain, the wind was also very strong, plus that at Beach Road in front of the Pattaya police station, the drains overflowed and could not release water into the sea, which caused extensive flooding. In just a half an hour, 50-cms of rain had fell from the sky, which made the situation on the roads very difficult and small cars could not get through the water, so some of them had to be pushed because of engine failure.

Journalists reported that the ‘activities area’ of a well-known shopping center, got completely flooded too, so shop owners and workers came together to force the water out, and completely clean many areas to prevent any damage to products and equipment.

The journalists also stated that there was a serious electrical shock hazard at the top of Soi-5, off Beach Road, and one unlucky victim had been sent to Banglamung (Government) Hospital. This was quickly reported to the local Electricity Authority, so they cut the electrical power off immediately.
