A few photographs from the flooding in Bangkok.  The Chao Praya River started overflowing days ago and has gotten progressively worse.  Above we see local people measuring the depth of the klong (canal) at the Din Daeng triangle (east of Victory Monument); next empty shelves at a 7-11; overflow of the Chao Praya River; (bottom left) what a typical klong looks like; sandbags protecting a business; a medical army unit becoming activated.

Amazing what has been swimming around in these flood waters.  An article about how many children are swept away from their parents and drown.

More pictures here and here.

Concrete Flood Barriers are being built also.
