Heavy Rains Cause Major Flooding in Korat

Nakhon Ratchasima—

On October 30th, 2023, drizzling and heavy rains from 2:00 AM until late at night caused standing floods in the Mueang area, Nakhon Ratchasima.

In the Nakhon Ratchasima urban area, standing floods overflowed Mueang road surfaces, public places, and residences causing trouble to locals, drivers, and passersby.

Many drivers parked their malfunctioned vehicles on the roadsides which caused traffic jams while citizens who lived on Suranaree Road had to barricade their entrances with sandbags.

The flood-affected areas were Suranaree Army Base 2nd – Korat, The Mall Korat, Assumption College Nakhon Ratchasima, Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital, Terminal-21 Korat Shopping Mall, and other locations.

However, the relevant agencies gathered to pick up clogged scrap from drainage systems and deployed water pumps to quickly drain standing floods from affected areas. As of press time, the situation was currently under control.
