"Twain is enough against the surface flood". (twain is two fathoms, about 3.6 meters of water depth). I wrote this far earlier from my past experience in the metropolitan flood.
However, the real problem on, not only an airport but also on most of manufacturing plants in many industrial complexes is SIPPING WATER AND SUBSIDING GROUND after massive flooding.
Suwannaphum airport was built in the middle of seasonal flood arresting low land - minus 1.5 meter under mean sea level. ALSO many mysterious underground water streams are running unseen and often some of them surface and destroy surface structure, such as runway pavement.
This time, this, COBRA MARSH land - Nhong is fully saturated by massive flood ON and to be worse, more are yet to come. The state of the watery soil may continue for next 6 or 12 months, or until next year's monsoon season.
HOPEFULLY, no more PLOWING on the runaway, with heavy body of Jumbo or A380!
