SAMUT PRAKAN, Aug 31 (TNA) – Flooding has already ended at the Bangpoo Industrial Estate which had been more than one meter under water over the past two days.
Roads inside the industrial compound became passable again for cars and motorcycles. Workers returned to their factories and surveyed the damage of their vehicles that had been inundated. At least 50 cars and about 300 motorcycles were damaged.
Meanwhile, flood levels were at 30-50 centimeters deep in the Muang Ake housing estate adjacent to the Bangpoo Industrial Estate. Local residents remained in trouble because it rained last night and floodwater there subsided slightly.
Bangpoo mayor Theeraphol Chuncharoen ordered the installation of big pumps to speed up drainage at the housing estate. (TNA)
