14 killed as floods engulf Thai tourist islands

At least 14 people have been killed in Thailand as floods engulfed southern holiday islands ahead of the December-January high season for tourism.
 
A low pressure system has brought heavy rain to parts of the south including the islands of Samui and Pha Ngan in the Gulf of Thailand.
 
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said in a revised travel advisory: “There is currently widespread flooding in southern Thailand, including in Koh Samui, Krabi, Trang and Koh Phangan, and other areas frequented by tourists.
 
“If you’re travelling in these areas you should monitor local media and follow the advice of the local authorities.”
 
Koh Samui Island and Krabi are the country’s top tourist destinations.
