Much of downtown Trang was badly flooded yesterday after a section of a river embankment collapsed, sending water pouring into low-lying areas. 

A high tide combined with run-off from nearby Thung Song district of Nakhon Si Thammarat province swelled the Trang River yesterday. The excess water caused a section of the river embankment in tambons Na Taluang and Nong Trud to give way.

Floodwaters in the municipality were up to 150cm deep in some areas.
