CHIANG RAI – Following a landslide at Moo Fah Thai Village, Thoeng district of Chiang Rai, local officials have met with residents of the affected area in order to request their permission to clear the path for heavy machinery, which will be deployed as part of the restoration effort.
Phu Chi Fa, a mountain area and national forest park in the northern province of Chiang Rai, was declared a disaster zone on Wednesday (Aug 1st), after continuous heavy rain caused a portion of the road leading to the popular destination to cave in.
People whose houses were completely destroyed by the disaster will receive compensation of 33,000 baht each while owners of partially-damaged houses will be paid an equivalent of the value of actual damage.
As for the road leading to Phu Chi Fa summit that was cut off, Highway District 2 has been put in charge of its repair. The process is expected to take no more than five days to complete.
