Bangkok faced a southwest wind with a speed of 10-25 kilometres per hour around 3.20pm together with light rain yesterday, resulting in 21mm of rainfall.
But only 40 minutes later, the intensity of the rain increased in Bang Na, Prawet, Saphan Sung, Bang Kapi, Wang Thonglang, Lat Phrao, Bang Khen, Huay Kwang, Din Daeng, Dusit and Bang Sue districts, resulting in the highest quantity of rainfall at 74mm.
Bangkok residents snapped pictures and recorded video of flood waters that “took over” the city, showing how the rain has seriously affected the metropolitan area.
A video even showed flood waters around the MCOT junction in Huai Kwang generating a wave that swept away several vehicles parked on the street.
