Flash floods triggered by heavy downpours swamped homes in Krabi’s Plai Phraya district on Saturday night and damaged public infrastructure.

The strong current burst drainpipes under the just-completed Khao Tor-Phanom Road, causing a 50-by-five-metre section to collapse. 

The gaping hole backed up traffic on what has become a major route to Phuket. 

As of publication time, with floodwaters subsiding, homeowners had begun cleaning up and local administrative bodies were assessing damage.
