Rain brought by tropical storm gives Bangkok respite from heat


Heavy to moderate rains on Sunday gave many Bangkokians relief from the searing summer heat, but also left several roads slightly flooded.

The rains, unleashed under the influence of a tropical storm over the Bay of Bengal, kicked off at about 2pm.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s Drainage and Sewerage Department reported that as of 4pm, the capital’s Huai Khwang district had been hit with the heaviest rain measuring at 97.5mm.

Heavy rain was also recorded in Wang Thong Lang (80mm) and Watthana district (76.5mm).

However, the floods were shallow and there was no traffic congestion as Bangkok roads usually have light traffic on Sundays.
