Following last night’s downpour, several areas in Bangkok were flooded this morning, leading to paralyzed traffic and lots of frustrated people in rush hour.

The Department of Drainage and Sewage reported that the most flooded area this morning was Ratchada Road. The water level rose as high as 30-40 centimeters at 1:40am, worsening the traffic on the already crowded route.

At least two cars gave out and broke down in the flood water in front of the court building.
