Traffic is still going slow on Thepkasattri Rd, particularly the road by Thalang School where officials are currently trying to drain out the floods.

Traffic continues at a slow pace on Thepkrasattri Rd through to Phuket International Airport, with many vehicles on the road.

Excess water is also flowing in from Khao Phra Thaeo.

Thepkrasattri District Municipality continues to dig up the drains to allow the excess water to flow through into the canal and hopefully clear the roads.
