Central province of Nakhon Sawan has the highest toll of 61 people, following by central province of Ayutthaya with 53 people dead, reported Xinhua. Flash floods were caused by the heavy monsoon and overflow from several dams in upper part of the country since mid July.

The floods have affected about 3.3 million households and about 10 million people in 64 of 77 provinces since July 25.

Seventy main highways in 13 provinces are flooded and some north-bound train routes were canceled. (IANS)
