Thai floods death toll tops 800
Bangkok: The death toll from months of
flooding in Thailand has risen above 800, although the waters
have receded in many parts of the country, the government said
Late reporting of deaths from the inundations in central
and northern provinces, along with heavy November monsoon
rains in the south of the kingdom have seen fatality numbers
continue to rise, the interior ministry said.
A total of 823 flood-related deaths have now been
recorded, including 10 in the south, since the crisis began in
July. Three people are still missing.
At their height Thailand`s worst floods in half a century
affected 65 of 77 provinces in the low-lying nation, deluged
hundreds of thousands of homes and forced the closure of large
industrial parks, disrupting global supply chains.
The waters have since receded significantly, but more than
two million people in five provinces continue to be affected
and many areas still face a major clean-up operation.
