Don Mueang Airport is now submerged under 2 meter deep water
The flood level in Don Mueang Airport is now at 2 meters deep while the water on Vibhavadi Rangsit road has reportedly moved up to Lak Si intersection and flooded some parts of Bangkhen district.
Small vehicles are now unable to pass through the Vibhavadi Rangsit road section in front of Don Mueang Airport. Even though larger vehicles may be capable of wading through the flood, a report said it is still difficult for a military truck to use the road.
The report added that the flood water had spread into Bangkhen and Saphan Mai areas but was still contained at Lak Si Canal.
The local road, which runs parallel to Vibhavadi Rangsit road passing Thung Song Hong police station, Miracle Grand Hotel and Chulabhorn Research Institute, is not heavily flooded with vehicles still able to pass. However, Chaeng Watthana road has already been closed to the traffic.
