One member of the Rawai Municipality Rescue Team who asked not to be named urged people to beware snakes on the move due to heavy rain across the island this weekend.

“If you live in the Rawai area and have a snake near your house, do not approach it and try to catch it yourself,” the rescue worker said.

“Keep your eye on the snake from a safe distance and call us at 076-613800 or the emergency hotline 1669 and we will come and catch it for you,” he said.
