Bangkok metropolitan region is plagued by flooding

After hours of severe rain on Tuesday evening, some portions of the Bangkok metropolitan region, which includes the provinces of Bangkok, Nonthaburi, and Samut Prakan, were submerged.
The city’s Drainage Department reports that around 8.30 p.m. in the Phra Khanong area, 140.5 mm of rain were recorded, which is the largest amount ever.

Numerous locations, including Soi Pridi Banomyong (Sukhumvit 71), Udomsuk Raod, and Bangna districts, have reported flash flooding.
Traffic on Sukhumvit Road and its connecting Sois came to a complete stop as a result of the floods, and numerous vehicles allegedly broke down because of the flood water.
According to the Drainage Department’s Facebook page, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration despatched emergency vehicles to help cars and pedestrians impacted by flooding.
On Tuesday, the Thai Meteorological Department reported the approach of a tropical cyclone that had formed off the coast of Vietnam.

According to the department, the storm will cause significant rainfall in a number of regions, including the northern, northeastern, central, and eastern ones, as well as Bangkok and its environs, the eastern region, and the southern region. Some locations will see torrential downpours.
From Wednesday through Saturday, the storm was predicted to travel over Thailand along the monsoon trough.
