Floods expected?

Recommended Posts

Last night the north side of Mahidol Road was sandbagged by the authorities. Not sure if that is to keep a flood in or out!

 

But for the water to get that high it would need a rain fall of biblical proportions, or the river to flood. Checking the Hydro website, there are very few updates, and no indication of a large body of water coming down stream.

 

Anyone know whats going on?

Just occurred to me that it is probably sand bags to protect a water pipe that is pumping water from flooded area into the Ping.

That was used to take the water from the low area around Chang Klan

Which was flooded yesterday

As they had to pump a lot of water as the smaller pump further up from the local market could not cope

I rode past this morning because i live locally and see all these area

As they were pumping from the waterway that comes down from the north  area

So do not Panic at this stage

This is Thailand. Of course floods are expected. The only question is how long they last.
