Thai­land flood woes

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

KOH SAMUI: Flood­ing in south­ern Thai­land has killed at least five peo­ple, dis­rupted trans­porta­tion and spoiled tourists’ hol­i­days at one of the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar re­sort is­lands.

An In­te­rior Min­istry re­port said eight south­ern prov­inces had been flooded by heavy rains that be­gan on Sunday. It said three peo­ple had died. Two more, a mother and child, were found dead yes­ter­day morn­ing in a sub­merged ve­hi­cle.

Flood­ing on the re­sort is­land of Samui in the Gulf of Thai­land snarled traf­fic and de­layed flights to and from the pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion. – AP
