Two reservoirs collapse in Rayong

After days of heavy rain, two major reservoirs in Rayong’s Wang Chan district collapsed on Monday night, submerging a village, which saw one man getting drowned and a woman missing.

There have been no official statements on whether it was the reservoir belonging to Wat Thammaros or the one belonging to the Wang Chan golf course that collapsed first. The golf course’s owner Damrong Sriprasert, however, claimed that the temple’s reservoir collapsed at 3am before the one in his property gave in at 6am despite efforts by workers to strengthen the wall.
