Drought causes large road collapse north of Bangkok, Thailand

Drought causes large road collapse north of Bangkok, Thailand

Just days after a truck got pulled into a huge crack on a road north of Bangkok, Thailand another large collapse occurred on the same road today.

The crack stretches almost 120 meters (400 feet) and is 4 meters (13 feet) deep. Officials said severe drought caused the water level at a nearby canal to fall significantly and added it might be the cause of the collapse.

Inspectors have also reported small cracks at various points along the road and closed it indefinitely. Traffic is being re-routed.
