The raging flash floods in Nakhon Si Thammarat’s Nopphitam district have brought shock and tears to locals.
“I saw my house crumble down before my own eyes,” said one woman, Sukanya Warapiang, tearfully.
On Thursday, she recounted her feelings when the flash floods struck the day before and brought down the house her family had lived in for more than 14 years.
“I had worked real hard to own it. Now, there is nothing left,” she said, as she came to grips with the life-changing event that had left her and her three children homeless.
According to Sukanya, there had never been such serious flooding in the area before.
