Banglamung District engineers will help repair the home of a local resident damaged by a falling branch of a 70-year-old rubber tree.
Banglamung Councilman Supachai Sangfah led workers from the district’s clerk and engineering offices to the Soi Banglamung 39 home of Suriya Wansuwong June 21 after the tree fell on his home the night before during a thunderstorm.
Supachai said heavy winds began around 10 p.m., and at 10:30, he heard a crashing sound from upstairs. A massive branch of the old tree had fallen on his home, breaking through a second-floor and damaging the house’s awning and a front window.
Family members were home at the time, but luckily no one was hurt.
Banglamung engineers cut away the branch to allow for repairs, which are estimated at 60,000 baht.
