This is the shocking moment rainwater cascaded down the stair steps like a waterfall after heavy rain in Thailand.

Residents noticed water flowing across the hallway of their apartment during a thunderstorm in the Thai capital city Bangkok.

When one of the tenants followed the water, he discovered the deluge gushing downwards on the staircase from the upper floors.

Footage shows water flowing down the structure like a waterfall after the building’s roof deck was flooded by the downpour.

Resident Sidtinan Borisut said: ‘It was raining so hard outside but we were on the upper floor so it was shocking that the flooding started from the top.

‘I followed where the water was coming from and found out that the roof deck had been flooded because the drain could not accommodate the volume of water.’

The building’s maintenance staff were informed about the incident. The water also receded about half an hour after the thunderstorm.

Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia such as Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines are in the middle of their tropical monsoon rainy season, which lasts until October or November. Soaring temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are often followed by powerful tropical storms with thunder, lightning, rain and flash floods which cause rivers to flow faster and become dangerous.
