Beach Road, Soi Khao Noi and Soi Bongkot were the hardest-hit areas following the Friday afternoon storm Feb. 24. Water raced like a river down the railway-parallel road and made wading pools out of the parts of Sukhumvit Road as well.

Flood victims helped themselves by pulling trash and out sewers and clearing flood-drainage grates of trash, but the flooding still took more than an hour to abate.
