Pattaya wasn’t the only area to feel the wrath of nature as heavy rains and flooding also lashed Sattahip, crippling transportation and swamping the city’s popular market.

Many streets around Sattahip saw water as much as two meters deep. The 700 Rai Market on Sukhumvit Road suffered some of the worst damage as pipes backed up, paralyzing traffic and damaging cars and motorcycles.

People in Sattahip suffered from flooding Sept 11 & 12, as did the rest of us. People in Sattahip suffered from flooding Sept 11 & 12, as did the rest of us.

Mayor Narong Bunbancherdsri instructed rescue workers from the Relief and Prevention Unit to assist drivers and clear the damaged vehicles to get traffic moving again. The cars that could move through the high water peeled off onto side streets.
