Flash Floods in Thailand
The Government of Thailand has issued a warning for possible flash floods and mudslides in 15 southern provinces in the coming days as three more deaths were reported from rising waters. The floods, the worst to hit parts of Thailand in decades, have left at least 59 people dead since October 10. The authorities estimate that 3.2 million people across the country have been affected by the floods, with homes submerged and farmland or cattle destroyed. The situation is expected to continue for weeks.
