Bangkok, Jan 12: Thirty-six people have died and one was reported missing in floods caused by torrential rains in southern Thailand, officials said on Thursday.
Â The ruling military junta dispatched a contingent of 4,000 soldiers for relief efforts, especially in the villages that have been isolated due to damaged roads and bridges. The late rains -- monsoon season usually ends in the region by November or December -- have been continuing uninterrupted for over a week, the department added.
