Phuket storm fells beachfront streetlamp

PHUKET: Strong winds that brought driving rain across the island this morning (May 12) felled a roadside streetlamp on the beachfront road in Kalim, north of Patong, blocking any traffic from passing through the area.

Patong Police and emergency services were called to the beachfront, near Sunset Kalim Soi 7, at about 9:30am.

Workers from the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) also soon arrived and began immediate repairs.

The workers took an hour to safely remove the felled streetlamp and the road has reopened to traffic.

More scattered thundershowers are forecast for today and tomorrow.

Patong Police urged motorists to drive carefully, especially as the heavy rain and strong winds will make the roads slippery.

Just looking about the place at the amount of massively overburdened power polls I'm surprised it's not a more common occurence.

Classic case of crap planning by installing a freeking blaring stadium light 10 meters from the waters edge. All lights along this highway should be lower profile and not so bright that you can see peoples acne scars as you drive by at night.  Another "special" lighting contract, I'm sure.
