Chonburi – Many Chonburi roads were found flooded after the sea level rose earlier this week.

 

A beach-side road at a new bridge in the Bang Plasoi sub-district in Mueang Chonburi district was found flooded on Monday morning (November 8th) as the seawater level rose up.

 

Water was found on road surfaces that ranged about 30 centimeters causing traffic delays and seeing some small vehicles become stuck in rising floodwaters.

 

Mrs. Duangduan Pantumaopas, 56, a local food and soybean vendor told The Pattaya News, “This is a natural phenomenon that takes place about once every year in November or December.

I've known the climate to change drastically in November December time period. I'm guessing though the sea level hasn't risen by 30 centimeters because of climate change.

Seasonal high tides have always had the possibility to create flooding. Higher sea levels caused by climate change will make this seasonal flooding worse.

Mrs. Pantumaopas is quite right, they are called 'spring tides'. The last one occurred on the 6th Nov, but the affect can often be noticed a day or 2 after the actual date. The water level can also be increased by a wind driven tidal surge.
