Phitsanulok’s downtown was hit by a heavy downpour for hours early on Friday, resulting in flash flooding of several roads, houses and shops.
 

Officials said heavy rains continued from 3am to about 8am in the downtown areas of Muang district.

 

After the rains, several roads were under 30- to 50-centimetre-high water, including Uthong Road and Phra Ong Dam Road.

Police had to put up metal barricades to warn motorists not to enter the flooded roads after several cars had their engines stopped by the high water.

 

Water also poured into houses and shops along the roadsides.

Sorry not a flash flood. Flash floods happen when there has been a great deal of rain in another location and the flood water comes to you without warning. It could rain on Doi Suthep be clear in Chiang Mai and a flash flood comes down Huay Khoa road. It rained in Plok for 5 hours the flooding should have been planned for not a flash.

I disagree. It's an example of  flash flood caused by sudden heavy rainfall.

We had bad weather in K.P.Phet roads were flooded as well.  Thank Buddha it only lasted about an hour.

Do you think they will fix the drainage system to handle a heavy rain? No. Do you think they will use these experiences to improve drainage systems in newer places? No. So this is not a news story at all. It's just the normal, accepted part of life in Thailand. When it rains, it floods and no one really cares. Just blame the rain and go on with life.

Ya cant expect them to fix the drainage while its pouring down like that

Then when it stops raining there is no problem , so no need to fix it :smile:
