Still raining in CM and will continue for some time yet.  Central regions will have problems in the coming days and week as water makes it's south.

Extensive flooding all over the North as rain continues unabated.  There are massive flows coming down from the hills into the Chiang Mai city valley area and the rivers, canals and khlongs are either full or overflowing.

Many roads and intersections are impassable to small vehicles and houses are under threat of minor inundation.

Absolutely pouring with rain here in Udon.

In town right now, too much rain to drive home.

In Chiang Mai and surrounding provinces the rain finally eased early evening although runoff was still cascading down from the hills.  Chiang Mai city and suburbs flooded in low lying areas, anything from a half a metre up to 2 metres in a few locations.   Similar levels to 2011.

Flood levels seem to have peaked around midnight although water has nowhere to go and is only slowly dropping.  Mahidol road & Hang Dong road south of the airport experienced up to 5cm surface water with some runoff pouring through low level shops.

I've walked around some residential areas and seen new homes that had 5cm of water thru lower levels, pools filled with brown silt, mud and stones across gardens and driveways.  Soi's still ~40cm/18" deep in water, was 75cm during the night judging by tide marks on walls.  Lakes, khlongs and obviously the Mae Ping river are all swollen, full, and will take a day or 2 to drain away ... south.
