The Patong – Kamala road was still blocked at midday after heavy rains led to a landslide and flooding earlier, Kamala OrBorTor Deputy Chief Nopporn Karuna told The Phuket News at 12.40pm.

“Right now there is a traffic jam in Kamala area caused by this flooding. The southbound lane (leading to Patong) is blocked by a big rock which we are trying to remove right now,” Mr Karuna said.

Meanwhile Kamala Traffic Police warned that a bridge on route 4233 was damaged as well.

Also huge damage to the homes and businesses in the area as surface run-off destroys their properties.  Why has this not happened before? Maybe because there used to be trees all over those hills? And not half vacant condo developments?

Why traffic jam? You have RTP officers with boots to deviate them to other main roads to go south wards.Right? Nevermind the bridge, in a few months there will be a lovely over-budget for it.
