The Blue Line, Orange Line and Purple Line are planned to have both underground and elevated stretches in the future. If the Bangkok Metropolitan Area were to be flooded, I think that any underground stretches of the MRT (existing or planned) may be affected by any flooding. This is the reason why most of Bangkok's rail rapid transit lines have to be elevated.

That is actually not the reason. The main reason is because, it is cheaper to build elevated lines than underground lines, and that all new lines will have to go underground in main historical areas. The design of underground station entrances are build high enough to not allow floodwater to get in.

MRT Blue line station during the 2011 flood.

Technically construction of the line is done 100%, however it is still missing the stretch to Bang Sue Grand Station, which is still u/c, and the setting up of electrification and procurement of electric train, which is in contract 3 of SRT Dark red line.
So the SRT light red line will have to wait for the SRT Dark red line and Bang Sue Grand station to finish constructing in 2018 to be fully usable.

Right now the line is served by diesel train only.

BMA BRT

Bangkok BRT will probably soon be out of service, when the BMA Grey line monorail get constructed.
