Deputy Mayor Wutisak Rermkitkarn on Tuesday donated relief supplies to a Naklua homeowner whose dwelling suffered considerable flood damage due to a blocked city drain.
The house and its owner, 73-year-old Viang Saengthong, were not the only victims of the flooding on Soi Vocational College in the Feb. 15 rainstorm despite the city’s donation of 100 sandbags to residents.
Wutisak said the flooding likely was caused by sand and soil backing up a flood-control drain not regularly cleaned. He ordered city bureaucrats to immediately get to work to fix the problem.
