Several Bangkok roads suffered minor flooding after the capital was hit with freak rains early on Wednesday, worsening traffic congestions during the morning rush hours.
The rains started at about 5am in several districts, including Bang Khun Thian, Thung Khuru, Phra Khanong, Bang Na, Prawet, Suang Luang, Klong Toei, and Vadhana, resulting in floods in many parts of the capital.
The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s sewerage and drainage department reported that Bang Na was the worst hit, with rainfall of 115.5 millimetres.
Among the flooded roads was Sukhumvit Road inbound near the Bearing BTS station. It was under 10 to 15 centimetres of water and vehicles were tailed-back for about 100 metres.
At 7.15 am, flooding affected Sri Nakharin outbound at the Bearings Intersection, causing severe congestion, with vehicles tailed-back to the Sri Thepha intersection.
