Continuous heavy downpours throughout Monday night brought widespread flooding to much of central Hua Hin on Tuesday.

 

The rain started to fall just after 2am on Tuesday morning followed by a severe thunder storm, which left many residents around the area of Soi 112 without power for several hours.

 

The deluge of water meant that many low lying areas of the town were left flooded and inaccessible.

The bottom of Soi 112, close to True Arena, was badly affected, as was were the areas between Soi 112, Soi 102 and Soi 94. A number of schools in the area were forced to close for the day.

 

Phetkasem Road was also badly affected from Khao Takiab in the south, up past Blu Port and Market Village towards San Paulo Hospital.

 

The area close approaching Big C was also flooded and in the north of the town, the area around Soi 6 was also inundated with flood water.
