Pattaya devastated: Farang goes down the drain and stinking water pollutes the sea
Thai caption: Pattaya is badly hit
More trouble has hit Pattaya - this time mother nature had her say.
Two hours of torrential rain on Tuesday left many roads impassable to all but large vehicles.
The road by the railway in the direction of Sattahip was under more than 50 cms of water. The shallow basin collects water more than most, noted 77kaoded in their report.
They said that many vehicles were damaged especially in the Thappraya area where there are several roadworks.
One foreigner with a woman on the back of his motorcycle was pictured being helped after apparently driving into a hole or a drain.
Beach Road was passable, they said, but the water there was black and stinking.
And it was all flowing directly into the sea.
