Heavy downpours brought floods and traffic nightmares to many parts of Bangkok on Friday.

Office workers stepped out to find inundated and heavily congested roads. 

Ratchadapisek, Phaholyothin,Vibhavadi-Rangsit and Charansanitwong were among key roads under water, as were the Prachanukul and Klong Ton intersections and Rama IX’s Soi MCOT. 

Strong winds had also reportedly uprooted trees and knocked over power poles at several spots in the city. 

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration said rain hit most parts of the capital and its adjacent provinces. Bangkok’s Huai Kwang district had the most rain at 96 millimetres.
