A bit of rain. Happens all the time. Absolutely correct. Every year there is flooding in BKK in January. :clap2:

Bangkok wasn't flooded by yesterday's rain, a few sois had a few centimetres for a short period, that's all.

Troops direct traffic after heavy rain and floods in Bangkok

 

Army battalions in Bangkok dispatched troops to help direct traffic at several spots after the capital was hit by heavy rain, resulting in flooding on many roads.


 

At the Nimitmai Intersection in Min Buri district, the water was about 20 centimetres high and troops from the Ninth Infantry Division were dispatched to direct traffic.

 

Troops were dispatched from the First Army Division’s First Infantry Battalion to help motorists at On Soi Phaholyothin 8 in Phayathai district, which was also flooded.

Thanks for confirming that what I said was correct.  Bangkok was not flooded, a few sois were for a short period of time and one had 20cms.

Heavy rain, Klong Chan flats, flooded parking lot. More than 100 vehicles were damaged and overflowing with traffic lanes 

          . Past As a result, many roads have been flooded and flooded, including the Klongjan Flats, Bangkapi Floods, more than 50 centimeters above the floodwaters, causing more than 100 vehicles to drown. Because the flood is very high.

Impossible. Even if a tsunami would be triggered in along the Philippines  fault line it would only hit  the southernmost part of Thailand. Take a long hard look at a map...

If there were a tsunami triggered by an earth quake or volcano that headed for the mouth of the Gulf and hit it square on it would get amplified as it headed for Bangkok, even only a few meters at the mouth of the gulf but due to the funnel shape of the gulf could easily be many times that by the time it hit Pattaya and Hua Hin and even worse by the time it hit Bangkok

a tsunami in the gulf of Thailand would be catastrophic 

 

take a long hard look at what happened in Japan not so long ago, the multiple video shooting of the event as it unfolded live was mind blowing 

Only a meteor strike could trigger a tsunami in The Gulf of Thailand, and it would have to be so massive, due to water depth in the local body of water, that the tsunami would be a smaller part of the disaster.

oh really, you do realise that a tsunami can travel for thousands of miles shifting a huge massive surge of water, you think that if it entered the Gulf of Thailand it would suddenly just stop.............I think not 

The Gulf of Thailand is protected from these far traveling tsunamis by several natural breakwaters, like the Philippines and other island chains between the Gulf and the great deeps of the Pacific and Antarctica. Tsunamis that could reach so far into the Gulf as Bangkok would have to cross unhindered over the Philippines and Indonesia. Borneo is a major obstacle in this direction...
