Flood?

Hi,

 

The Criminal Court isn't that far from me either, although I think I am likely in the other direction from Flashermac. The floods last night in the area here were just rain related I think. My soi flooded as well (about 5cm), but within 30min all the water was gone again.

 

Sanuk!

yup definitely a major difference between the common ~30min rain floods & weeks inundated with flood water!

again not all journalists seem to even make thios distinction lol ^^

 

so far so good bkk still standing :beer:

They should pump the excess water up here.Our rivers and reservoirs in Southern England are nearly dry!

i'm a bit confused.

i've seen maps posted on this board showing the areas which are flooded or at high risk and i'm curious about phuket.

i saw somewhere that phuket is listed as high-risk but i'm getting conflicting reports from 2 thai girls working there.

both say now very hot but 1 says little rain and no sign of major flooding and the other says much rain and much flooding.... :confused:

both have good english language skills when speaking but i think they have a problem with e-mails and the questions i have asked.

but they both live in the same house,work in the same bar so conflicting stories is bugging me.

 

asked 1 of them what the conditions are like in her hometown of roi-et and she just kinda misunderstood and went on about 'i not go home/work hard/no customer/no money' etc,but no answer to my question....

trying to get in touch with an english friend of mine to find out what the situation is but so far no luck.

 

but i can't help thinking it's my fault....

 

my visit in 2010 co-incided with the chaos caused by the volcanic ash saga and the troubles between the reds and yellowa.

some doubt wether i would even get to LOS but thankfully i did but then restricted in Bkk with curfews and areas sort of closed/no skytrain etc.

never been to LOS in december and is it still part of the monsoon season?.

Phuket has no flooding and nor does Ao Nang/Krabi. Up until last Monday it had been raining very heavily in this area, and this caused some minor landslips. But from about Tuesday, it's been hot and with little rain - and definitely no sign of flooding.

 

Bear in mind that a lot of the flooding in central Thailand/Bangkok, is coming from the rivers that pass through the area.

i thought that was likely to be the case.

i've been on various parts of phuket after a fierce downpour or a hours light rain and roads did get covered in a few inches of water and maybe that's classed by some as 'flooding'?.

i've walked 5 minutes back to my hotel whilst raining and the roads certainly retained a low level of water which looked worse due to the high kerbs.
