Vibhavadi Road and Phaholyothin Road about 1 mile from the intersection Ladprao and stop there. All of BTS and MRT stations are still open .However some stations also have a limited exit, such as Ladpro station.

Kasetsart University is that home of Center Nuclear reactors, which are smaller nuclear lab, however it can be Little concern for residents in the neighborhood.
Many efforts to prevent flooding into the heart of Bangkok. The major drawback is the inefficient management. Not understanding of the people in the catchments area which may have been under water for longer than usual for Bangkok protection. But the lack of publicity and not enough support causes to fight for these people to use these areas to prevent flooding
These problems are very challenging subproblems for the new government was responsible for only a few months. This situation may be created a hero, or Satan.
But now the majority of the government to solve problems that are very low efficiency.
BTS and MRT remained open as usual and have confirmed the availability of flood protection for up to three meters and has a 24-hour surveillance.
Many stores closed, check before you travel. West of Bangkok, is the area most affected by flooding over 1 m of water area , However the left bank of the river or the west is the residential area,
No economic significance is similar to the east.
If efforts to protect water as the flood Bangkok are failed Bangkok will flood with a 1 meter deep all Bangkok areas within 7 days, That is the biggest damage, the in history of Bangkok.
This flood has an impact on the world global industrial sector because Thailand is a production base for auto parts and electronic components of the world.
It is also an important food source in the world, Thailand is top of a rice exporter of the world, flooding are destroyed economy of the Thailand very much.
Water still goahead to Bangkok , north of Bangkok flooding along the Vibhawadi road and many roads are closed no cars can pass through. The first water line now at Vibhavadi hospital and goes into the Ladprao junction, which is station of MRT and BTS.
On the west side of Bangkok or the left bank of the river. It is estimated that the area has the greatest impact of flood . The water arrive Phetchakasem Road, a main road to the west of Thailand. However, the water has traveled much more slowly than anticipated because construction on the way. However, it is expected that the water arriving at Rama II in the next 5 days.
On the east side of Bangkok, is now least gradually affected than expected. But do not underestimate must be surveillance because this area is locate of many industrial and International airport.
In Bangkok are not affected directly, but has been affected due to water level in the river by the time of the sea level up and down.
The water level is higher than the wall and flooding influx in the economy area of bangkok. It was not long time before it back to normal, because the sea level dropped.
Has been estimated in various ways. And no one will know what is the best solution, to prepare the most accurate time. Bangkok is still not affected by the flooding BTS MRTcontinues to serve as usual. Donmuang airport is closed and move to the Suvarnnabhumi airport. Travel to North and south by bus may be a problem in a day or two, because the water started to flood in, if this transport, both north and south.
Next 7 day is judgement week of bangkok if we can pass ,we are the winner.
Today 27/10/2011 07.13 AM (Bangkok time) Water level continue to raise in the north and west of Bangkok.
The upper waters higher than two days earlier and long distance about 10 kilometers. Donmaung airport was declared closed. Runway has been flooded by water many water surrounded that plane, Vibhavadirangsit road in front of Donmaung airport full with water deep about 1 meter cars cannot pass up.
Water continues to go ahead to the center of Bangkok, within the next 24 hours will arrive Ladprao Jatuchak Market, which Bangkok has announced the closure Jatuchak Market until the situation is resolved.
BTS MRT and Airport Link still open, Suvarnnabhumi International airport still save from flood and ensure that water does not flood the airport Suvarnnabhumi 100%.
Hotel beside Chaophraya river are preventing the water level up to the hotel by a wall of protection higher than 3 M because the water level in the river is now higher than normal levels. 2.5 M and tends to increase.
The government announced, changes to add extra day for 3 days in Thursday, Friday and Monday added to the catalyst prepared with water. The government agencies do not have to mean a flood will stop all, But banks and financial institutions do not stop. And private companies to consider within the agency.
This situation is not very heavy but the biggest problem now is to get as many routes are closed due to flooding. And another problem is the lack of food for the 7-eleven to buy food can be difficult and expensive .
Who will now travel to Bangkok to delay a trip to the first. But if it is used as a way to go out to the North or South, can still move.
Lastest flood situations Bangkok 24/10/2011.
Water began to Bangkok starting from the top left and right. Particularly in the West Zone, which is a residential community is home to many large Bangbuathong are,a flood water into the village, all with more than two meters high. Against the east of bangkok water still behind the wall and continue to do fine. The top middle of Bangkok the water spill into the streets Vibhavadirangsit road the main road heading into the heart of Bangkok. The fist important that are expected to be affected is the Donmaung Airport former main airport of the country before moving to Suvarnnabhum airport and It is also place of the headquarters to solve the flood problem. The center of Bangkok is still not affected of flood in any way.
The problem now is that there has been hoarding goods ,very hard to find some goods especially food and drinking water. People began to stress more on both the flood and the flood is coming. Have many conflicts in society with the different parties do not want to flood,this is serious problem more than flood.
Many problem in management, when they conflict with each other to resolve problems between Bangkok and government. Because the two management Power is being hijacked. The problem is with great difficulties as a real crisis.
Thailand is a country with a caring attitude towards each other very much. The flood swept them away from society. Assistance from foreign countries may help, but can not be called anything but harmony back to Thailand again.
Estimates of large quantities of water to travel into the heart of Bangkok in about 7 days ahead. Have many expected theory that the water will not flood in Bangkok or not? However, the water will flood or not does not matter anymore, because now the water has flooded into the heart of Bangkok people, then reveals an intense selfishness. Cleavage could create problems for countries more and more than flood.

Thailand is located on the delta plains of the Chao Phraya River is the backbone of the country. In the past, in the rainy season, water may flood in some years . But in the past three years after the flood situation is becoming worse every year and this year is the year 2011 much water as possible has been recorded.

Areas that are affected include the central region. From Bangkok to the north up to the river more than 400 kilometers.
The preparation and avoiding travel. Despite numerous warnings, the capital Bangkok we expect all parties to prevent them from flooding . However, be careful and prepared. In the north of Thailand, the flooding situation began to normal situation now, But if you want to Travel to north by car bus or train it is also difficult, the best is travel by air.
Concluded that the situation is still bad if you count the trip should be postponed to at least 30 days , but if not prior to travel to travel by air is better. West and south of thailand although there is some rain but no flooding situations can be travel.
Next situation of bangkok please watch here only.
