The Governor of Bangkok Aswin Kwanmuang has spoken to reporters to apologize to city residents effected by the severe flooding which left over 50 locations around the city underwater on Saturday.
After a whole night of heavy rain the people of Bangkok awoke Saturday morning to find the streets looking more like Venice than Bangkok with water in some places up to a metre deep.
According to reports many major roads were also affected including Sukhumvit, Lat Phrao and Rama IX.
The governor said “You don’t have to blame anyone – just blame me, blame the Bangkok governor for the slow drainage.”
He went on to apologise to those effected by the flooding stating that the heavy rain coupled with the already high water levels in the canals around the city has led to increased times for city workers to drain away the waters.
He said that the city workers had been working tirelessly to drain the waters since the early hours.
