Thailand is under water - level 3
After three months of heavy rain, about a third of Thailand is under water. The floods destroyed farmland and made tens of thousands of people leave their homes.
Large parts of the capital Bangkok are also flooded and some people say the water will rise even more.
This is also bad for the economy as many shops are closed and some parts of the city are without tourists.
506 people have died since July this year but nobody has died in the capital.
The city’s second airport is under water but the main international airport and the city’s transport system are still operating.
