Is bangkok flooded now?

Hi guys! Anyone in Bangkok can confirm if it is flooded now?

I overheard news last night that Thailand is flooded in certain areas! Want to know if Bangkok is affected as well, as I will be heading to Bangkok this Friday!

Do fill me in!

Thanks in advance!

I haven't even experienced any of the normal localized flooding that is typical for this time of year!

It rained a lot last night, but no flooding so far. Nice and sunny today!

The weather in Bangkok is not really the concern. The Chai Nat dam is already releasing water at a rate only just below the amount that causes downstream flooding. A heavy rainfall warning is in effect from now until Sunday for basically the entire north of Thailand. The government is only interested in spin and will not give any accurate information about the situation. If the rains come as promised then next week could get interesting. I live next to a canal in Bangkok that can't be closed off, I am moving stuff upstairs today!

We have been in Bangkok a few times when there's been flooding but it's nothing major it didn't stop us visiting the city, we'll be there in 10 days time and are expecting rain as is usual in October but it doesn't put us off.
