Floods in Thailand trap tourists, disrupt road and rail transport


Floods stranded more than 40 tourists at several resorts in Ratchaburi’s Suan Phung district after bridges to other areas were damaged.

Soldiers and local villagers were trying to build a temporary bridge late yesterday before sending vehicle-loads of food to villagers and the stranded tourists. Officials were also considering dispatching flat-bottomed boats to bring the tourists out.

Flooding has ravaged many parts of Ratchaburi causing damage to farms and upsetting the lives of locals.

Ratchaburi Governor Suthep Komonpamorn has already declared Chom Bung district and Ratchaburi town as disaster-hit zones because of serious flood damage. People were advised to move their belongings to higher ground, as the flood risk continues.
