Several hours of heavy downpours crippled traffic on outbound Phahol Yothin Road as some lanes were flooded, the FM91 traffic radio station reported.

Traffic on Rama II, Rama III, Srinakarind and Sirinthorn roads also moved at a snail’s pace this morning.

In Samut Prakan, Saming Phrai intersection and Praeksa Road were inundated. Traffic was heavier in these areas.

In Nakhon Ratchasima, heavy downpours continued to hit many districts of this northeastern province this morning.

Kiartichat Praichan, director of Nakhon Ratchasima meteorological station, said on Saturday that southeasterly wind prevails over the lower Northeast of Thailand, causing heavy downpours in the region between April 28 and May 1. Luckily, there were no fierce winds that could damage houses during this period, he added.

Suthep Ruenthawin, head of the provincial disaster prevention and mitigation office, said heavy downpours hit most areas in the province on Friday night, with the heaviest rainfall reported in Chakkarat district.

Mr.K.Flash floods after very heavy downpour occur all over the world.Even in Singapore.Want to blame someone,than blame the God of Rain! And X-Mas Uniform? I understand it may looks like that for someone who is used to wear a Singha-Shirt,beach short,sandals and knee-high socks daily.And if Thailand is not smart enough for you,why not simply move to Singapore???

Same report as before, and before, and before, and before.
But nothing done, year after year not to tackle the problems.
And why not? Thai government doesn't care. They refuse to point out someone responsible.
After all such person 'bought' his job, including his fancy X-Mas uniform. 
It is just for 'face' and money.
That is why Thailand never becomes SMART like Singapore....
