Heavy monsoon rains and widespread flooding have killed 283 people in Thailand and more than 200 in Cambodia, and millions more have been affected, Mission Network News reports. In the northeastern and central plains of Thailand, residents brace for more flooding as the government plans to release water from overflowing dams. The floods, which have affected 58 of Thailand's 77 provinces, are the worst in more than 50 years. The government said Bangkok would be spared, but with thunderstorms in the forecast for the next few days, the worst might not yet be over.
