BANGKOK — Thunder and lightning and buckets of rain opened up on the capital as storms hit much of the nation Saturday.
After a month of scorching Sun which saw a record-breaking heat wave and an unprecedented spike of electricity use, the City of Angels was showered with a relieving spell of rain showers since noon, as predicted by the Department of Meteorology.
But the torrent of rain also means that traffic was snarled on some flood-prone roads, especially in downtown Sukhumvit.
However, there were no immediate reports of injury. Official website of Bangkok authority says that there is no severe case of flooding so far.
