One of the most widely shared picture on social media today was this one taken by Tang Siripatra. This afternoon Bangkok experienced a very big thunderstorm. Not only was there heavy rain, but also a strong wind. This produced horizontal rain. On Twitter there was speculation that the carriages were leaking. But that wasn’t true. What happened was that the train stopped at Ari station for an extended period of time. The wind then blew the rain into the carriage causing it to flood.

RT @BTS_SkyTrain: ภาพน้ำในรถไฟฟ้าขอชี้แจงว่าเกิดขึ้นจากฝนที่สาดเข้ามาในรถขณะเปิดรับส่งผดส.ไม่มีผลกระทบต่อการเดินรถเมื่อถึงปลายทางจนท.จะเข้าไปเช็ดก่อนให้บริการ
