Monsoon rains in Thailand have been causing an already drenched country to get even wetter, with water now sweeping from the north southward into Bangkok, one of Asia’s largest cities. As the WSJ reports:
Most of Bangkok’s central business district remained dry on Thursday and operating more or less usual, thanks to a series of makeshift barriers in northern sections of the city that have kept the biggest flows of water at bay. But floods have inundated at least seven of Bangkok’s 50 districts, mainly in the city’s northern outskirts, and more are at risk.
