    This made me giggle in today's 'Nation'.

    16 districts and 2 sub-districts of Chiang Rai and some districts in Chiang Mai have been declared as disaster areas after a third day of temperatures below 15 C. (60F)

    I turned my a/c on last and set it at 27 on the basis that it would be warmer than room temp. Do you think it works

    It's about the only time in Thailand when a warm shower feels good.

    Sixteen districts and two sub-districts of Chiang Rai and some districts in Chiang Mai have been declared as disaster areas after a third day of temperatures below 15 degrees centigrade.

    In upland areas such as Mae Sai, Mae Chan, Phan, Thoeng, Wiang Pa Pao, Mae Fa Luang and Wiang Kaen, temperatures below 5 degrees have been recorded at night.

    More than 146,700 people, mostly living on the top of mountains, have been facing cold conditions. Chiang Rai's Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office estimates that 140,000 people lack suitable clothing to cope with the cold.


    Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department also warned about the El Nino phenomenon, which has caused surface temperatures in the middle and eastern parts of the Pacific Ocean to increase by more than 1-2 degrees in the past month.
    It said El Nino would cause unusually high temperatures in Thailand during winter and summer as well as a little rainfall.

    it was raining non stop for almost 2 days here

    Channelnewsasia.com

    most of these pics are 5 mins walk away from my flat.

    i took the day off work yesterday as it was my daughters birthday. Planned to go for a surprise trip the water theme park Wild Wild Wet.
    But in the torrential rain it didnt seem like a fun idea, so we just stayed at home all day. What a waste of a day's leave.

    BREAKING NEWS

    Major floods in Singapore, Johor

    Kuala Lumpur (dpa) - A 24-hour deluge in Singapore and Malaysia's southernmost state of Johor caused flooding, landslides and the evacuation of 10,000 people to relief centres in Johor, officials and news reports said Wednesday.

    Continuous rainfall Tuesday caused almost all districts in Johor to be immersed in the floods, dubbed one of the worst in a century, state chief minister Abdul Ghani Othman said.

    Water levels of four rivers in Johor rose to dangerous levels, and the pouring rain caused nine major landslides there, prompting the army to prepare 20 boats and a helicopter for rescue efforts as well as to deliver food and clothing to the affected areas.

    Mudslides in Singapore left several traffic junctions impassable, officials said, and more rain was predicted.

    "The rain is expected to continue until Friday as the north-east monsoon brings showers to central Johor," Abdul Ghani was quoted as saying by the official Bernama news agency.

    No deaths or serious injuries were reported, but there were minor accidents in Singapore.

    Members of the city-state's Civil Defence Force rescued three employees Tuesday from an office building after flooding prevented them from opening the main gate. A hole was cut in a side fence to let them out.

    The third-heaviest inundation recorded in Singapore was most intense over the northern and central parts of the city-state.

    Vehicles were diverted from several traffic junctions rendered impassable by the rising water, and mudslides covered two cars, parts of a playground and the front yards of several homes.

    "What a backbreaking task, scooping water out of the house," 60- year-old housewife Habsah Rohe told The Straits Times newspaper.

    Within two hours, water that started rising around her wooden home was up to her knees.

    The thunderstorms and torrential downpour started Monday and was the third-highest rainfall recorded in Singapore in the past 75 years, the Public Utilities Board said. Over a 20- hour period, the total was 345 millimetres, exceeding the entire monthly average for December, which is 284.4 millimetres.

    The highest rainfall recorded in the city-state over 24 hours was 512.4 millimetres in 1978.

    Nurseries, outdoor dining outlets and retail booths were the worst-hit businesses. Plants and equipment were swept away.

    "I've been here 26 years, but this is the worst," Sharon Ong, who runs Candy Greenhouse, told the Straits Times.

    Every year, during the north-east monsoon, tens of thousands of people in Malaysia are forced to leave their homes and move into temporary shelters because of the monsoonal floods. Critics have said that the floods are made worse by bad irrigation systems and polluted rivers and waterways.
