BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -

1222dv-thailand-flooding Spawned by unrelenting rains, some of the severest floods in decades have killed at least 130 people in peninsular Southeast Asia, according to the latest reports Thursday.

Three weeks of flooding in southern Thailand have left 52 people dead and thousands stranded without provisions in remote areas while 69 people have perished in central Vietnam, some of them in landslides. Northern Malaysia, where nine are reported dead, is suffering the worst floods in 30 years.

Well it's not just earthquakes and snow. I read the other day about the rain that this area had been receiving, but I had no idea that it was this bad. The really bad part are those people who depend on their land for their liveliehood, farmers and the such.

This year's flooding is regarded as the country's worst in 40 years.

If this is the worst flood they have had in 40 years, then more people should pay attention and I wouldn't be all that surprised were it to get worse then it already is.
