MY TWO SATANGS
You may not be aware of this but it's raining quite heavily this year. On Tuesday Bangkok experienced rainfall of 138mm per hour; this caused heavy flooding on a number of roads across the capital.
Now, I say you might not be aware of this, because despite the fact a) you can see it, and b) we had some pretty bad flooding last year, so much so that we should have expected similar problems this year, a number of state authorities seem to be oblivious to the problem.
Therefore, I think it's safe to say that if the people whose job it is to combat heavy flooding across the city were caught unawares, then the average Somchai on the street must still be in shock.
