Flooding has affected isolated areas on the island this morning with traffic being backed since 5am this morning on Thepkassattri Rd southbound in Srisoonthorn after minor flooding occurred in front of Moo Baan Eua Arthorn.

The area in front of Thai Wassadu on Thepkassattri Rd was also affected by floods earlier this morning, but the water is now reported to drained away.

According to the weekly weather forecast provided by the Thai Meteorological Department, Phuket this week will see fair to heavy widespread rain from today through Aug 30 with waves predicted to reach heights of up to three metres.

Meanwhile, Phuket City Municipality today posted an announcement on their Facebook page advising residents to be extra careful because some areas have been affected by the amount of rainfall.

Officials are being sent to affected areas to monitor and check that water is draining away as it should. Police are also being sent to the worst affected areas to direct traffic.

Residents in need of assistance should call the Municipality hot line 1132 or the office of disaster prevention on 076 211-111 ext 199.

I'm curious as to why the flooding never gets any better, despite billions of Bangkok baht being spent on silly drainage projects.  Actually, I'm not curious as to why there is still flooding, as the work done is shoddy at best, and criminal at worst...hard labor put forth by Burmese women and children under the "supervision" of lazy bum Thai males, all of whom have been arranged by cheating and corrupt local officials.  What I'm curious about, is why the NCPO doesn't crack down on corruption...unless they themselves are playing the same under-the-table games.  This theft of public funding by scumbag local officials is hurting this country in a BIG way.
