Thailand is under water - level 1

Thailand is under water - level 1

08-11-2011 16:00

After three months of heavy rain, 30% of Thailand is under water. The water is on fields. And thousands of people can’t live in their homes.

Big parts of Bangkok are under water too. Some people say that the water will go up more.

This is bad for the economy too because many shops are closed.  Some parts of the city have no tourists.

506 people died between July and now. But nobody died in Bangkok.

The city has two airports. One airport is under water but the second airport is OK. Buses still go in Bangkok too.
