Government officials and private agencies rushed to hand out aid to some 400 families hit by floods in four tambon of Ranong's Kapur district on Wednesday morning.

 

Kapur district chief Chalermpol Khru-ampho led officials and volunteers to help the villagers.

 

Some 3,000 residents of Tambon Kapur, Tambon Chiew Liang, Tambon Ban Na and Tambon Bang Hin in Kapur district were affected when their houses were hit by runoff on Tuesday.

 

The floodwaters have subsided after draining into the sea, leaving only low-lying parts still under water.

 

Most residents had returned to their homes by Wednesday afternoon.

Given the amount of rain this area gets annually, something extraordinary must have happened to cause floods like this. The first time I saw year-to-date rainfall figures for Ranong on the TMD site, I thought they had to be wrong. Would love to get down there one day for a look.
