Thailand ’s worst monsoon floods in decades have killed 224 people and affected three quarters of the country, officials from the Thai Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation said.

Two months of flooding have inundated 58 of 77 Thai provinces - with 25 still severely affected - and damaged the homes or livelihoods of millions of people, according to the officials.

Authorities are battling to stop the floods reaching the low-lying Bangkok .

Director of Thai Integrated Water Resource Management Royal Chitradon said the current flood situation is the worst that he has ever seen and it is likely to last until the first week of November.

Meanwhile, Keo Vy, spokesman of the Cambodian National Committee for Disaster Management, on Oct. 4 stated that the Mekong river floods have killed at least 164 people in the country.

Since the beginning of August, the worst floods in the past decade have inundated 15 cities and provinces in Cambodia and destroyed 291,000 hectares of rice, affecting the lives of 215,662 families.

Keo Vy warned that the water level is still continuing to rise in Mekong River , especially in Phnom Penh, and Stung Treng and Kratie provinces./.
