Predawn freak rains cause floodings and traffic chaos in Bangkok, Samut Prakan
Predawn rains on Wednesday (Jan 31) in Bangkok and its surrounding provinces caused flooding and traffic chaos on many roads with Sri Nakharin road in the capital’s eastern part suffering the most. The Thai Meteorological Department forecast rains in the capital today when the cold spell from China moved in to cover the country’s upper regions first and later to the eastern and central region including Bangkok and its vicinity. It said beginning today Bangkok’s temperature will fall 1-3 degrees Celsius with average temperature at 25-26 degrees. Suffering hardest by the freak rains and floodings this morning were Bang Na district in Bangkok, Sri Nakharin, Sri Thepha, and Samrong areas in Samut Prakan. All traffic lanes on Sri Nakharin road near Lotus Supercentre were submerged with almost 30 centimetres of water. Several vehicles were knocked down by floods, thus deteriorating the already worse traffic jams during the morning rush hours....
