Eighteen confirmed deaths as flash floods hit southern Thailand.

At least eighteen people have been confirmed dead in a series of flash floods across southern Thailand in the first week of 2017. The flooding has been described as 'roof-high' in many areas, with widespread evacuations carried out across southern Thailand and northern Peninsula Malaysia. Power supplies have also been disrupted in many areas, as power cables have been brought down by the flooding, which has also caused many roads, railway lines and some airports to close, as well as public services such as schools. Concern has also been raised after a number of Crocodiles escaped from Tha Lad Zoo in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, which has also been inundated by floodwater.

Thailand has a tropical climate, with a wet season that usually lasts from June to October. However, as with other countries in Southeast Asia this year, the rains have persisted long into the cool dry season, which in Thailand typically lasts from November to February.
