The eastern part of the Thai capital and the neighboring Bangkok province of Bangkok in the west of the country were completely flooded on Thursday evening, the water hit the heart of the Thai capital. The largest seasonal flooding in Thailand in half a century, caused by repeated heavy rains, has created a critical situation in the central and eastern regions of the country. More than 300 people were killed and nearly 3 million were injured. On Wednesday night, the government's flood control center decided to "sacrifice" Bangkok's eastern districts to save the city center from flooding. Three of the seven locks (two on the Chaopraya River and one on one of the bypass canals) are open at night so that water can pass through Nonthaburi, which is effectively Bangkok's province, without having to enter and return. the eastern districts of the city are Minburi, Klong Samwa and Sai Mai. At night, all six districts of Nonthaburi province and most of eastern Bangkok were at a depth of 1. 5 meters, Thai media reported. On Thursday morning, Bangkok residents informed Prime Minister Yinglak Shinawatra that water had entered, spilled and overflowed into a lock in the Klong Prapa Canal (water canal) area on the northern outskirts of the city. in the geographical center of the city - Samsensky and Makkasansky districts . Klong Prapa Canal is one of the longest in Bangkok, it runs from the northern outskirts of the city to the center, through a series of historic districts and ends in the city center. More than eight billion cubic meters of water accumulated and poured into the sea from the country's higher northern regions, according to the Thai Ministry of Irrigation. Bangkok is blocked by this waterway, protected by locks, three-meter earthen ramparts and a sandbag fence. According to the government's original plan, the water was supposed to bypass the city from the east and west, without touching the city center. The Chaopraya River can flow directly into the sea with a water volume of 200 million cubic meters per day. Experts suggest that the bypass roads to the east and west of Bangkok could “work” without more than 86 million cubic meters of water per day.
