Worst Flooding in 50 years–Thailand

It’s been a hard October for Thailand this year. They have been deluged with flooding of epic proportions and I have to say news on this is not at the forefront.

Here’s an article I found on .cnn in case you’re interested and have not heard too much on it.

Also, my dad sent me some pictures last week of the flooding on the main roads nearby.

Of course, I have to add, that since these pictures were taken he’s had to evacuate the village he lives in due to the flooding finally hitting it. He told us that he tried to walk back to his house and the water was up to his neck and his cars are all underwater.

The flooding has affected a lot of things. He is thankfully safe, staying at a friends place outside of the flood zone, although they don’t have electricity or internet. Also the optimistic outlook is that this is going to be ongoing for the next 4-6 weeks.

I hope everyone stays safe but admittedly am going to keep emailing my dad (supposedly there are a few places they can go to use internet) to come back to Hawaii for an extended vacation.
