BANGKOK (AlertNet) - Brownish, stagnant water rises to waist height, lapping at the front of houses and leaving dark stains on the walls. The only way for people to leave is to take a rickety boat to the main road, where more floods await.
It's been two weeks since resident Kanyanee Ounsri and her husband last worked. Floods have forced the 31-year-old and her Cambodian husband, a clothes seller, to stay put deep inside a long and narrow street, south of Bangkok’s old Don Muang airport.
