Heavy overnight rain causes flooding around Sri Ping

Heavy rain overnight has caused widespread local flooding throughout Mueang Chiang Mai with the worse affected area being around Sri Ping, just south of Chang Klan.

Local roads were flooded, at some points up to 1 meter in depth, with some reports suggesting that recent works on the Mae Kha canal may have exacerbated the situation.

Minor road flooding, exclusively caused by blocked drains, was reported throughout the city including Chareonprathet Rd. in Chang Klan and parts of Mae Rim, Fa Ham and Mae Jo.

Chiang Mai Airport recorded 65.1 mm (2.56 inches) of rain overnight.
