Flood Warning Bangkok and thecret of Thailand

Jump to last reply

Be warn that a huge amount of water is making its way towards Bangkok and is expected to reach inner Bangkok in 3 to 7 days. Northern Bangkok is already beginning to flood and areas around the old airport is seeing rising flood water. The province immediately to the North of Bangkok is under water and for anyone in Bangkok at the moment all you have to do is drive north of Don Mueang airport and see for yourselves.

The flooding will not be like a flood after a heavy rainfall but it will be like rapid water rising and could be severe like a fresh water tsunami. After one or two days the water will start to pollute and a few days after that it will be full of garbage. Once flooded expect the flood water to remain for weeks.

Google GISTDA and look at the daily satellite photo to see the progression of the huge mass of water.

Central, and Southern Bangkok is still safe but other areas are suffering badly. No electricity, fresh water or food. All the markets in Bangkok don't have bottle water anymore and stuff like flash lights, dry food, instant noodles are in high demand.

Please help donate to any flood funds for Thailand and the other countries in the area. People are suffering badly.

Lastly this current and the worst flood in Thai history is not due to heavy rainfall. Human error, bad water management and poor leadership are the reason and now millions are homeless, hungry and indeed of shelters,

I will not be on line often due to personal hardship but be warn if you have plans to come here in the next month or two.
