School hit for 8th time this year by flash flood

Chinnawat Singha

PHITSANULOK: A school in Noen Ma Prang district on Sunday morning was hit by a flash flood for the eighth time this year following a heavy downpour on the Chomphu mountain range on Saturday night.

At about 5am, a large volume of water descended on Ban Nampad School at Moo 2 village in tambon Chomphu and quickly inundated it. The water level reached two metres about three hours later.

About 100 houses in the area were also flooded.

The water began to recede at about 9am.  It was expected to drain completely by noon.

The school was last hit by a flash flood on Friday – only to be hit again for the eighth time this year on Sunday.
