I can’t afford to be over dramatic with my headline today (unusual for me) because I am not in Ubon at the moment but in fact somewhere in rural Krabi down in southern Thailand.
I was speaking with John, the new owner of Peppers this morning and he told me mentioned that Ubon town had received a spot of rain over night and into the morning. He wasn’t half wrong it would seem! I noticed on Facebook local Ubonites mentioned flooded yards and water lapping at the doors of their homes.
John sent me a few pics which are not that good quality as they were taken on his phone camera but they still give a good indication as to the amount of water laying around his house in central Ubon.
My wife called her sisters who live 100km south of Ubon and they said they were also experienced very heavy and possible devastating rains. Can any of you local readers fill me in with any other details?
*EDIT* I have just noticed that my mate Jason who lives close to John has updated his blog showing some serious flooding photos. Click here to have a look. I think I should change my headline to “Flooding causes havoc in Ubon Ratchathani”
