Chiang Mai – Floods Cause Traffic CHAOS


Via: City News – Chiang Mai

The Northern Meteorological Department told the press that the monsoon trough covered northern and northeastern Thailand while the southwestern monsoon trough covered the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. This caused widespread and heavy rain all over the country.

In Chiang Mai City, places that were worst hit included the Padad Underpass near Police Region 5, Chiang Mai Department of Land Transport, Sri Pingmuang community, Nantaram community, and Fahmai community.

Flooding also occurred at Sanpakoi Market, Night Bazaar, Changklan Road, Central Plaza, and Chiang Mai Airport.

This caused gridlocked traffic. (yeah, no kiddin’!)
