At Least 5 Killed, More Than 385,000 Affected in Thailand Floods

BANGKOK – At least five people have been killed and more than 385,000 have been affected in flooding owing to heavy rains in several provinces in southern Thailand, the country’s disaster management agency said Thursday.

Two people died in the Pattani province, two more in Songkhla province and one in Yala, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation said in a statement.

Apart from these three provinces, five others – Phatthalung, Trang, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat and Surat Thani – were also affected by severe flooding caused by continuous rainfall triggered by a strong monsoon.

The floods have affected more than 2,500 villages in 74 districts of these eight provinces and the province of Satun, where the situation has now improved, according to the statement.

Floods are common in southern Thailand between September and December, and in the central and northern regions between June and October.
