Upon inspection of the area in Soi Wat Boonsumpun and Soi Khao Noi, Central Pattaya the City Hall officials found the level of flood water higher than 50 cm making if hazardous for passenger cars to drive through. Some of the vehicles stalled in the flood water and there were engine damages caused by water splashed up into the engine compartment. The roadside houses and the shops had to use logs and sand bags to block the high water.

Pattaya City co-ordinated with the team from Sawangboribul Foundation and all available units were mobilised to assist the people impacted from the flooding. So far, there has not been any reported injuries or dead.
