Among the areas hardly-hit
were Hua Lame village in Langsuan district and sub-villages in the three sub districts as giant waves struck before noon time. No casualties have been reported so far.
Flooding in the coastal villages did not originate directly from heavy rainfall in contrast with the flooding devastation in Southern Philippines
as giant waves struck the villages which reportedly caused the flooding.
Thailand has been struggling from months of flooding which submerged many villages in Bangkok including industrial areas where export-oriented factories maintain the production facilities.
In the Philippines, Japanese automaker Honda has suspended its operations last month due to lack of spare parts coming from suppliers in flooded areas of Thailand.
The economies of other countries are now feeling the shortages of parts and products coming from Thailand.
Japan will be hardest hit as several giant companies have their manufacturing operations in Thailand including Toyota, Honda Hitachi and Canon. Most of these plants remain closed after floodwater enter their factories.
At least seven major industrial estates have been inundated
with floodwater reaching as high as three meters causing heavy damages to plant machinery and equipment.
Meanwhile, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said her government will consider the flood crises which has brought down Thailand export production to its lowest levels, as an opportunity to rebuild the country's infrastructure including its water resources management system.
