Chiang Mai, Thailand

Unseasonably wet ‘DRY season’ weather in Thailand

Bangkok traffic flows during morning rush hours yesterday became paralyzed after the city was hit by heavy rains and gusty wind causing three traffic lanes to be blocked by fallen trees and flooding condition covering 23 spots of main roads.

Following heavy downpours since 4.30am until late morning yesterday traffic jams became SEVERE especially . . .


Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Department of Drainage and Sewerage director Sanya Chenimit said the amount of rainfall in Bangkok yesterday early morning was measured as 70120 millimeters HENCE many flooding conditions . . .


Meanwhile, Chon Buri’s Pattaya City residents were frighten of ‘tsunami like in Japan’ after the city was hit by heavy rains and gusty winds early yesterday morning, causing signboards and trees to collapse, a blackout, flooding condition in various areas and subsequent traffic jams while many resident homes were also damaged by strong wind – but the authority affirmed there was no such tsunami gathering in the Pattaya Bay.


70,120 millimeters = 2,761 inches

I don’t know, but it seems to me the ‘Nation’ and the ‘Bangkok Post’ newspapers are in SEVERE need of proofreaders.
