BANGKOK, Oct 21, 2002 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Nationwide floods this year will cost Thailand over 200 million US dollars to repair the economy, and economic growth between October 2002 and March 2003 will be affected.

As of late September, the floods have damaged over one million hectares of farming lands across the country and total paddy output will decline by 1-2 million tons this year as a result, the state-owned radio said Monday.

Thai farmers have so far lost 200 million dollars in revenue from rice while growers of other commodities have lost 130 million dollars.

BANGKOK, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Floods that caused chaos in Bangkok this week have eased but officials said on Wednesday the south of Thailand faced the prospect of torrential rain in the flood-hit country.

Weather officials said heavy rain could last until December in southern Thailand and there was a risk of flash floods in some villages and towns, including the region's commercial centre, Hat Yai.
