Flood strikes Koh Lipe in Satun

SATUN, 12th August 2017 (NNT) - Days of heavy rain in Satun have triggered a flood that is striking the southern province’s resort island Koh Lipe.

Police officers of Koh Lipe Police Station have rushed to flood-torn areas to help the villagers move their belongings to higher ground. The deluge has reportedly swamped the roads leading to a luxury resort and two villages.

Accumulated rainwater over the past four days has brought on the flood that has put some areas more than half a meter underwater. Police have asked the administrative sector to send water pumps to carry out drainage.

Cloudy weather continues on the island.

I find it quite incredible (literally) that an island, and such a small one at that, can flood any more than surface run-off. There is no water catchment area to speak of and everything runs off into the sea.

It is (soon to be was) my favourite island. I say was due to the horrendous mess they're making of the island. The backstreets (they're not roads) clogged with rubbish in parts.

In this case, I very much doubt that nature is solely to blame.

Severe flooding on Koh Lipe prompts urgent assistance

SATUN, 14 August 2017 (NNT) – The Satun Provincial Office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation is rushing assistance to the southern resort island of Koh Lipe as many residents have been impacted by floods.

Five hundred relief bags and water pumping machines have been delivered to Koh Lipe by the Satun Provincial Office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation for distribution to local residents after incessant rains resulted in heavy flooding on the island. According to reports, about 400 fishing households as well as a number of shops and resorts are suffering from the disaster. The flood situation has also rendered underground water sources unusable, leading to water shortages.

The island has been declared a disaster zone. The Governor of Satun has assigned the Provincial Office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation and the Provincial Public Relations Office to closely monitor the situation.

Besides Koh Lipe, many parts of Satun have also become inundated with floodwater, including Tha Phae, Khuan Don, Khuan Kalong and Mueang districts.
