THAILAND – Thailand has cleaned up after a storm caused by heavy rains left at least 30 people dead and thousands homeless.
The death toll has risen to 31, including at least nine children, as Thailand is still reeling from a devastating flood.
The storm caused rivers to burst their banks and wash away buildings and homes.
The flood waters swamped the capital Bangkok, causing a landslide that damaged many buildings.
The floodwaters had swept away cars, cars and motorcycles.
Thailand’s President Prayuth Chan-ocha ordered the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people, as the country’s emergency operations center issued a national emergency for more than 10 million people.
The floods also damaged homes, with one of the most heavily damaged in Bangkok still missing.
The area around the temple of the Buddhist god Dukkham is currently being rebuilt.
More than two dozen homes and other buildings were damaged in the floods, which swept away entire neighborhoods and killed at least two people.
Many people were trapped on rooftops or under bridges as torrential rain flooded the streets, flooding many of the nation’s major transport hubs.
