Over 30 cm of water cover certain Bangkok roadways. To prevent damage to their vehicles, drivers had to open their windows, turn off the air conditioning, and go gently. Many drivers chose to leave their vehicles parked on bridges as they waited for the rain to stop since flooding in certain areas was so bad. Chadchart captured his staff carefully and cautiously managing the high water on the Ratchada, Asoke, and Sukhumvit rivers on Facebook Live. According to the governor, the water level in the Khlong Saen Saeb canal had not been this high in a very long time. Up until July 24, there will be “isolated heavy to very heavy rain in most parts of the nation,” according to the Thai Meteorological Department. Bangkok has been significantly impacted by Thailand’s persistent rains; one university in the heart of the city even had to postpone classes today owing to floods.

Today, Ramkhamhaeng University declared that due to water inside and outside the building, classes had been canceled on both campuses. The flooding was made worse by the heavy rain that fell all night. As he sped across the city, Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt examined the flooding conditions in several locations.

On Ramkhamhaeng Road in the east of the city, there is one of the university’s campuses. The other is in the south central area of Bang Na.
