“Swampy” lived up to its nickname on Wednesday night as heavy rains caused transport chaos for passengers wanting to get home.

Lights out and transport chaos as heavy rain hits Suvarnabhumi AirportThe area around the ground floor public taxi rank was inundated with water to a depth of up to 60 centimeters making it impossible for taxis to enter the area, reported Sanook.

Passengers had to scramble up to the fourth floor to see if they could get a taxi with many waiting for up to three hours for a lift.

Reporters on the scene observed that many taxi drivers refused to take Thai people preferring to take foreigners to their destinations.

Cars and motorbikes were seen stranded on the ground floor as flood water swamped them. Some lights went out at the airport for about two minutes before emergency systems kicked into place.

The storm occurred about 8.30 pm.
