300 stranded along Chiang Mai-Chiang Rai road

120 vehicles and 300 people were stranded along the Chiang Mai – Chiang Rai road from the night of the 2nd August following severe floods which destroyed six sections of the road.

The damage was done along the kilometre 32-40th kilometre stretch of the road. It has been very hard to get food and supplies to the stranded people. But the governor has found accommodation for them at local schools and parks and all are currently well and safe.

The road will be inaccessible for the foreseeable future, but the stranded are all expected to be able to leave by tomorrow.
