IMG_0831I’m honored that this blog has proven popular in the past week with over 3,000 visits by people searching for news about the flooding of Bangkok. I’ve continued to cover the issue because I know updates are important to those living in and around Bangkok.

Today or tomorrow – after we evacuate yet again — I will drive around for more photos and try to post new updates. In reality, we’re all tired of the flooding and would rather that our lives get back to normal.

Below are links to some local websites that I’ve been monitoring for news about the flooding. The Bangkok Post has been particularly helpful. Some are more technical and offer deeper analyses of the flood’s movements. Many of the sites are in Thai, but you get the picture.
