Some parts of Bangkok were under 20-30-cm layer of water on Thursday morning after heavy rain, marching all night.

The flooding has caused many kilometers of traffic jams during morning rush hour.

The third national TV channel of Thailand reports that the flooded area appeared in the center of the city, on the Western, Eastern and Northern outskirts of Bangkok. Five secondary schools in two districts, where the water level exceeded 40 cm, closed until further notice of the authorities, the report said.

On the streets of the city bred the harvest technics, in many places, with powerful pumps, pumping water into the city’s canals and river Chaophraya.
