Residents of four tambon in Muang Lop Buri had to scramble to save their goods on Tuesday morning after five hours of heavy downpours triggered flash floods.

Residents and officials said the muddy mountain run-off swamped Khok Toom, Nikom Sang Ton Eng, Tha Sala and Kokko.

The areas had seen nearly 142 centimetres of rain, according to local weather officials.

Several roads and the tambon business areas were inundated.
