Pattaya, 22nd February 2011: At 2.00pm after a cloudburst, heavy gasts of wind, followed by a spate of torrential rainfall lasting over 30 minutes, it was reported that many of local residences and cars had been damaged by the large trees collapsing and the blasting winds. The reporter surveyed damage at Moo4, Pong and Moo6, Nongprue.

Mr. Smphong Bunsiri (56), a villager from Pong claimed that it was first time in his life to see an event so severe and very scary as this. The storm had built up heavily in a few minutes and uprooted big trees while blowing the rooves off several houses. Other villagers tearfully revealed similar stories and remarked that their houses and cars had been destroyed. They had no idea how to manage with this trouble. At the same time some officers had been dispatched to investigate at the scene to check the damage.

In the area of Moo6, Nongprue a similar situation existed. On investigating the area a villager, Miss Phim’s was discovered trapped by a collapsed cement wall injuring her and her house was severely damaged by the storm. She was sent to the hospital for treatment. The villagers, some of whom literally have no roof over their heads, need urgent government relief.
