Bangkok has come under direct attack!
Flood water from suburban Rangsit rushed into Klong Prapa this morning. That means Bangkok has come under direct attack. Bangkok is not safe anymore.
Areas on the outskirts of Bangkok such as Nonthaburi and Pathum Thani were infiltrated in full force yesterday. Water at the worst-hit area was as high as two meters or more.
Premier Yingluck Shinawatra was woken up in the middle of the night to join Police Gen Pracha Promnok, director of FROC, to rush to Klong Prapa, where tap water is produced for the whole of Bangkok and nearby areas, and admitted that things were getting worse.
Police Gen Pracha declarede: "We can't fight the huge volume of water anymore. Bangkok people must start moving things higher and ready for flooding."
Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra has warned that seven areas in Bangkok are vulnerable and residents should get ready for flooding.
Things will get worse before they get better.
