Floods rage in southern Thailand due to torrential rains

The main road in Songkhla province and parts of Narathiwat municipality were under water Friday morning as heavy rains continued in the southern region.

Water up to 50 centimeters deep blocked traffic on Road 407, the main road connecting Hat Yai and Muang districts in Songkhla province.

Motorists slowed traffic as they traversed the flooded section at Ban Klong Leuc in Muang district, causing congestion. Another road in Hat Yai district was also flooded.

In Songkhla and other southern provinces along the Gulf of Thailand, it has rained for three days.

In Narathiwat, part of a municipal area in Muang District was flooded and rescuers helped people move valuable belongings to higher ground as more rains are expected.

The Meteorological Department on Friday forecast rain for 80 percent of the area from Chumphon south to Narathiwat through Saturday. The forecast followed a warning Thursday that strong winds and rough seas would persist through Saturday.

According to the department, the heaviest downpours occurred in Songkhla, where 263 millimeters of rain fell Thursday.
