Officers from the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) in Krabi brought in machinery to Tupprik Sub-District yesterday (June 19) to fix the Huay To Bridge after it was damaged by flash flooding.

The damage to the bridge blocked off a community of 30 houses near Khao Panom Benja National Park as well as officers at the national park. Cars could not use the bridge. 

Head of the DDMP in Krabi Paisan Kunsri said: “We are repairing the bridge while making a temporary bridge as quickly as possible to help residents cope in the meantime. If there’s no more heavy rain, the temporary bridge should be able to be used until a permanent one is completed next month.”
