Pattaya, the 14th of October 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Commencing early on Wednesday evening, Pattaya has experienced a late end to the regions typical monsoon season, with heavy rain and strong winds lashing the coastal city, causing widespread flooding and damage to local residences and businesses.

Reports of major flooding along the Sukhumvit Road between North and Central Pattaya emanated on Wednesday night, resulting in significant traffic congestion issues in the area as flooding was reported at several feet in depth along certain sections of the major highway.

Numerous vehicles were abandoned in the floods as water rose over the bonnet, while numerous businesses and residences on Phettrakun Road, North Pattaya up to Soi AR in Central Pattaya reported damage relating to flooding and fallen trees in the strong winds. The 7-Eleven opposite Burapha Beer House suffered shattered windows in Wednesday’s storm.

Pattaya Relief Services were inundated with calls from around the city with several crews dispatched to assist in the pumping of excessive flooding from major roads and businesses, such as the Nova Park Hotel’s car park, which was completely submerged in water damaging several parked cars and motorbikes.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department revealed that an extreme low-pressure weather system was currently moving its way up the eastern seaboard with monsoonal rains, strong winds and high humidity expected over the next few days through to at least Saturday.

Accordingly, Pattaya City has prepared several readiness systems to aid the public in containing the situation and preventing further damaging incidents, however residents have been advised to monitor the situation in their own area, communicating problems with emergency services.
