Mother Nature is back raising havoc in the greater Pattaya area, flooding streets and neighborhoods and felling trees.  The latest, Monday’s overnight rain, played dominos with power poles in Naklua after a tree collapsed and fell into electrical lines. Provincial Electrical Authority officials were called in, but had to wait until city workers could arrive to cut up the fallen tree before they could restore power to the area.

Power poles go down like dominos in storm

Monday’s overnight rain played dominos with power poles in Naklua after a tree collapsed and fell into electrical lines.

The ground weakened by the downpour, the huge tree on Soi Pothisan 3 fell around 5 a.m. Its branches caught wires of one electrical pole and the force pulled down three others.

Alarmed neighbors jolted awake by the clamor called authorities, who informed both the Provincial Electrical Authority and city hall.

The PEA was first to arrive around 9:30, working to restore power to the area. But they had to wait for city workers to arrive to cut the tree into pieces.

The poles will be replaced and the city was expected to have removed the last bits of fallen tree by the end of the day.

The tree across the road in the background fell across power lines during the storm early Monday morning, causing 4 utility poles to fall like dominos.The tree across the road in the background fell across power lines during the storm early Monday morning, causing 4 utility poles to fall like dominos.
