I am updating this thread - with pictures of Suk Soi 4 every day. For the moment it is bone dry mate. Road to Pattaya is the same AFAIK.

 

Cheers,

I heard the same report, and since I live directly opposite Sukhumvit Soi 50 (on Soi 79), I went to take a look.

 

From a point 1.8 km southwest of Sukhumvit, I took the photo shown at: http://twitter.com/#!/StoneSoupBKK/status/129822334596038657/photo/1 This was looking southwest.

 

500 meters to the west, Khlong Prakhanong water level was absolutely normal - see http://twitter.com/#!/StoneSoupBKK/status/129831847847931904/photo/1

You need to go down to the road by the port - between Soi 50 and Soi 42 - right outside the port entrance.

 

This area always flooded in past years, so nothing out of the ordinary.

simple fluid dynamics as some one might have said ^^ the water flows to where gravity tempts it & only there!

in this case a bit of a tickle ~3cm or what? & gone again after a couple of hours I'd expect :beer:

Last night, 8PM or so after the rain stopped, I drove all thru the port via Soi 50

and no water out of the ordinary.

High tide this morning at 0721 (4 m) and then again at 1717 (3 m).
