Bangkok residents flee floods as river threatens to burst banks 27.10.2011 Guardian: Environment
Thai capital reaches 'critical moment' as Chao Phraya river defences likely to become submerged this weekend Thousands are fleeing Bangkok after the city's governor ordered residents of three districts to evacuate and breaches in dykes allowed floods to spread through the capital. The central government has declared a five-day holiday from Thursday, encouraging many to leave the city. A naval official warned the city's main river is likely to overflow its defences on Saturday, when high tides are expected to merge with the heavy run-off from further north. The floods are the country's worst for more than half a century and have claimed 373 lives. Unusually heavy rains have killed hundreds more in neighbouring Cambodia and Burma. "We're at a critical moment, we need to monitor the situation closely from 28 to 31 October, when many areas might be critical ... Massive water is coming," said Bangkok governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra. The UK Foreign Office urged Britons to avoid all but ...

Thailand leader admits flooding has overwhelmed her government 19.10.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
Yingluck Shinawatra asks country to 'set aside politics' amid the battle to stem the waters and keep the public informed Thailand's new prime minister has acknowledged that the flood crisis has overwhelmed her government and pleaded for solidarity from the country in the battle ahead. In an emotional appearance before the press, Yingluck Shinawatra said her administration was doing all it could and trying to be clear about where the flooding could strike next. Mixed messages from officials in recent days about whether the floodwaters would enter Bangkok appeared to have caused confusion among the public. A poll by ABAC, associated with Bangkok's Assumption College, found that 87% of 415 people questioned did not trust information from the government's flood command centre. "We have been doing everything we can, but this is a big national crisis," Yingluck said. "I'm begging for mercy from the media here." Bangkok's city government, led by the opposition, urged residents in seven ...

Thai PM appeals for unity amid flood crisis 19.10.2011 Asian Age: International
Thailand's premier urged the country's rival political factions on Wednesday to work together to tackle the worst floods in decades, as residents in parts of Bangkok were put on heightened alert. "Today I will frankly tell you the truth. I have left no stone unturned in this crisis but I cannot solve it alone. I need cooperation from all sides," a teary-eyed Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told reporters. "Let's set aside politics. We must work to restore people's morale," she added, in what appeared to be an appeal to the opposition Democrats. Authorities in the low-lying capital have been racing to reinforce barriers with sandbags in an attempt to protect the city of 12 million people from floods that have killed more than 300 people around the kingdom. Bangkok governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra -- of the rival Democrat Party -- on Wednesday warned that seven districts in northern and eastern Bangkok were at risk of inundation because of a broken dyke. He ...

Thailand: Bangkok escape floods as waters recede 16.10.2011 Asian Age: International
Thailand's government is expressing confidence that Bangkok will escape the worst flooding to hit this nation in decades as flood waters begin receding across central plains north of the capital. Agriculture Minister Theera Wongsamut says said the largest volumes of runoff water flowing down from the north have already passed through Bangkok's Chao Phraya river and into the Gulf of Thailand. He says water levels on the river will go no higher. He also said on Sunday that water levels in the provinces of Singburi, Angthong and hard-hit Ayutthaya have begun to recede. Theera stopped short of saying the threat to the capital had passed, however. Bangkok is being shielded from the floods by an elaborate system of flood walls, canals, dikes and underground tunnels. ...
