Thai floods moving towards Bangkok

Leave a comment

Thai authorities are staging a fighting retreat against flood waters that threaten Bangkok after the country’s oldest industrial estate was completely inundated and a nearby one faced imminent threat.

Hundreds of soldiers and volunteers had taken part in the effort to save the Nava Nakorn industrial estate after its defences were breached over the weekend, but surrender came on Tuesday with an evacuation of all workers.

By nightfall, the entire property – home to hundreds of factories and tens of thousands of workers – was covered by water more than a yard deep in places.
