SOLDIERS and volunteer reinforcements were moving to a remote area of Krabi this afternoon as officials assessed the scale of a natural disaster than has left at least 13 people dead, scores injured, and hundreds still missing.

At least 1100 people have been evacuated as hillside torrents and mudslides turn valley villages around mountainous Khao Phanom into death traps.

Witnesses told Phuketwan reporters of seeing homes, vehicles and whole plantations swept away or destroyed beneath raging waters.
