Floods Close Bangkok Airport; Thousands Displaced

Ad Feedback

Rising floodwaters in Thailand broke through a barrier protecting Bangkok's second largest airport on Tuesday.
   
Don Muang airport was home to the country's flood relief headquarters. One of its terminals has been converted into an overcrowded shelter filled with tents for about 4,000 people.

So far, the flooding that began in late July has left more 360 people dead.

Although water levels at the four rivers responsible for the flood are starting to go down, a third of the country remains underwater.
  
Anxious residents are flocking to stores to stock up on emergency supplies. Many are trying to protect their homes and businesses with sandbags.
  
CBN's Operation Blessing is in Thailand distributing blankets, mosquito nets, and medicine to people forced from their homes.
