BKK Governor worried about high volume of floods in Bang Phlat and Thawi Watthana
Today, Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra reported that the water situation in the Chao Phraya River is getting better with the water level of 2.44 metres above MSL (Mean Sea Level). The figure is slightly lower than the estimated level of 2.50 metres above MSL.
The governor said that although the high tide period has passed, the upcoming high tide in November is needed to be watched as well.
As for the flooding situation in Bangkok City, the flood level in Don Mueang, Lak Si and Bang Khen districts continues to increase and expand. Meanwhile, Bangkok’s side of Thon Buri still sees a huge volume of floods, particularly in Bang Phlat, Thawi Watthana, Taling Chan and Bang Khae which will come under close surveillance of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.
