BANGKOK, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) — A total of 594 people were confirmed dead and two people were missing in the floods that have inundated the upper part of the country for about four months, the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department reported on Friday.
Twenty-seven more people were confirmed dead on Thursday in the central province of Ayutthaya (20), Nakhon Pathom (4) and Ubon Ratchathani (3)
Floods were caused by the heavy monsoon “Nock-Ten” and overflow from several dams in the upper part of the country since mid July.
On Friday, floods still prevail in 19 of 77 provinces and are affecting about 5.1 million people from 1.9 million households.
The floods have affected about 4.0 million households and about 13.4 million people in 64 of 77 provinces since July 25.
