Several areas across the country are facing flooding and flash floods on Wednesday, September 7th, after the heavy and constant rain battered most parts of Thailand on Tuesday evening.

In Bangkok, a high level of floodwater was accumulated in many areas, causing heavy traffic and congestion since yesterday, particularly on major roads including Vibhavadi Rangsit, Chaengwattana, Ngamwongwan, Phaholyothin, and Srinakarin.

And due to flooding which caused traveling difficulty, Kasetsart University Laboratory School Center for Educational Research and Development in the Chatuchak district was ordered to close for one day. Teaching online was applied in all classes on Wednesday.

Apart from the capital, flooding was reported in 13 provinces, 18 districts, 23 sub-districts, 33 villages, and 62 households since Tuesday evening, according to the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation. The situation is resolved as of 9:00 AM. However, the areas along Chao Praya Dam, including Ubon Ratchathani, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, Ang Thong, and Pathum Thani, are areas of concern as the Maon storm continued to prevail over the country.

The Thai Meteorological Department also warns of flashfloods and overflows near waterways and lowlands from Wednesday until Friday the 9th as isolated heavy to very heavy rains are possible across the country.

Waves in the upper Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf of Thailand could reach as high as 2-3 meters and more than 3 meters in thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and small boats keep ashore.
