Residents, soldiers, and volunteers yesterday busily cleaned up the economic town of Hat Yai as the devastating floodwaters subsided.
The worst flooding engulfed Hat Yai earlier this week, leaving locals in dismay without any electricity or tap water.
At press time, electricity had been restored in most parts of Hat Yai town. Running water, however, will not come back until tomorrow.
The cleanup operation started immediately, clearing debris that was everywhere.
“I don’t think the cleanup operation will be completed within one day. But we will do our best,” medical student Tatsinee Narinrat said as she swept a Hat Yai road. “We come here to help. We feel so sorry for the flood victims”.
