Old favorites were especially affected - some roads in Patong, where construction has blocked or diverted canals and drains, and Chao Fa Road in Rawai were becoming passable again by mid-morning.
Phuket's weather forecasters warned that storms were still a danger at sea. Tourist speedboats and small craft were advised not to leave shore today, the meteorologists suggested.
The advice that tourists were safer on shore was repeated by the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, where new Phuket chief Sanyatawat Riwleuang warned of more monsoon storms to come.
He said four areas were badly affected today by overnight floods: Wat Tai Intersection, Nabon Road, near Wat Tai, in Chao Fa West, the TOT Chalong branch in Chao Fa East,
and the Patong area around Nanai Soi 8.
The weather is tipped to improve tomorrow, after rain tonight.
