PHUKET: Minor flooding from heavy rains across Phuket over the weekend has now drained, leaving roads clear and island residents to resume their daily business, officials have reported.

The news comes after deluges flooded main roads in Phuket Town notably Phuket Road, Montri Road and Rassada Road, all in the heart of the Phuket Old Town quarter, where water ran up to 20cm deep yesterday.

Heavy rain over the weekend also caused a landslide on Saturday on Soi Yodsanae, the lone road leading up the hill to the Big Buddha image in Chalong.
