- +

Around half of people in Bangkok are concerned that the capital will be hit by floods again this year, according to research by Bangkok Poll. 

The pollsters at Bangkok University based their conclusions on interviews with 1,190 people living and working in the capital.

A total of 48.7% of respondents said reports on flooding in several provinces have made them feel increasingly concerned about possible floods in Bangkok, while some 54% believed floods would hit the city this year, though the situation would not be as critical as it was in 2011.
