Beautiful clouds appear after heavy rain in Thailand


Footage shows a beautiful sunset with rows of cotton-like clouds after rain in Chachoengsao, central Thailand, on May 9.

Heavy rain battered the region but when the showers stopped, the sky cleared and a patchwork of crisp white stratus clouds could be seen.

Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia such as Malaysia and Indonesia are approaching their tropical monsoon rainy season. Soaring temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are often followed by powerful tropical storms with thunder, lightning, rain and flash floods.
