It was reported that a substantial amount of damage was caused when a large tree came crashing down outside of the police force flats on Soi 5 just off of Pattaya Second Road yesterday afternoon.
Rescue workers and members of the provisional electrical authority were quickly on the scene, luckily no one was injured when the tree estimated to be 20-meters-tall came down, however it did crash through some electrical wires and damage as many as 10 police vehicles which were parked in the area.
Residents were warned that this would happen though it would seem.
It was reported by Sanook that a local woman foretold the destruction and the falling tree after the goddess of the trees appeared to her in a dream and warned that the tree would fall.
The goddess apparently appeared to the owner of a local massage shop in the area who did attempt to warn local residents, some did heed her warning and move their possessions out of the area though it appears others didn’t listen.
Vision or no vision workers quickly had the damaged power lines repaired and a cleanup effort was soon underway to remove the downed tree.
