Hours of torrential rain that hit Pattaya yesterday caused flooding and made some roads impassable. But that didn’t stop some adventurous drivers giving it a red-hot shot!
The road by the railway, heading towards Sattahip, was under half a metre of water in places. The area is prone to flooding when the monsoonal rains kick in, according to the 77kaoded report.
The Beach Road was passable but the water there was “black and stinking” and flowing straight into the sea.
A foreigner, along with his female passenger, ended up even further underwater when they drove into an unseen drain. They were both wearing helmets at the time but it may have been more use if they’d worn lifejackets instead.
