Hills and mountains can absorb much water due to prolonged torrential downpours on a large scale over the past month, triggering a huge risk of landslip.

Upon an appearance of a mountain crack behind the Cha Lo border post on the morning of October 19, all officers and soldiers were promptly displaced to Cha Lo international border checkpoint. 

As predicted, a mountain-slip struck behind the border post at 9PM on the same day, causing significant property loss.  The entire road surface of National Highway 12A passing through Cha Lo station was damaged.
