Krabi Flood January 8, 2017

Krabi floods on 1/8/17. Bad flooding for today around Krabi Town and Ao Nang Beach area.

Well, we had some significant flooding again in Krabi today after about 10 hours straight hard rain. Many small areas were flooded, but we didn’t have any loss of life due to flooding that I’ve heard yet. Mostly just impatient people in vehicles that cause accidents.

Here’s my video – I rode around on the motorbike to see what I could see. Lots of flooding between Maharat Road and Krabi Road. Very little in Krabi Town.

The airport was probably closed for a bit today due to heavy rain and water on the runway, but since 5:00 pm. we have not had heavy rain, so maybe OK by now.
