This map presents a detailed thematic overview of the severe flooding within the northern and central sections of Bangkok, based on a review of satellite data recorded 24 October 2011. Standing flood waters are clearly visible across most sections of the city, inundating virtually all agricultural fields, significant stretches of major roads and highways (including Rt3111, Rt346 & Rt9) as well as large residential areas, leaving tens of thousands of small homes either partially or totally submerged; Multiple industrial facilities (e.g. concrete production) located along the Western Outer Ring Road (route 9) are severely affected as are main hospitals including Pathum Thani, Muang Pathum, and Krung Siam St. Carlos Medical Centre; Because of local cloud cover, some areas of flooding are not visible.
