Subsidence causes about 20 houses in Samut Prakan to collapse


Recommended Posts



More than 20 houses in a community next to a pond, in Bang Pla sub-district of Bang Phli district of Samut Prakan, were damaged after the land on which the houses are located subsided last night.


One of the residents in Soi Srisamphan said that land beside the Bang Krabue Canal, which lies between the pond and their community, began to crack on Monday.


He said he notified the authorities and the company which owns the pond, but nothing was done.

Looks like more than just subsidence. The whole area has moved, more of a landslip (unstable soil has moved en masse). If the pond is deep with steep sloping sides, could be part of the problem.
