BANGKOK — Seasonal storms continue to pummel Bangkok, causing traffic mischief, mayhem and some damage throughout the capital on Wednesday.

Some unfortunate cars parked in a quiet little lane next to Wat Ratchabophit in the Dusit district were smashed when a large tree and utility pole came down in the fierce storm at about 2:30pm.

One of the vehicles belonged to Channel 3. Its rear window was shattered.

The weather downgraded traffic on Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road from the usual “bad” to “awful.” Flooding reportedly hit three major roads: Ngamwongwan, Pattanakarn and Srinakarin.


Forecasts call for dark skies and a lot more wet through the weekend, with some possible relief come Sunday.
