The Flooding In Khorat

The unstoppable power of Nature doing as it pleases, much of the area that is Nakhon Ratchasima - better known to tourists at Khorat or Korat - is currently under water, the result of the worst flooding there in 50 years. 24 of 32 districts are currently under water.

The land will survive, the homes can be rebuilt and the vast number of acres of rice crops lost can be replanted, but I'd ask you to join me today in stopping a moment to wish the people living there strength and courage in these most challenging of times.

Bao-Bao, I had this exact conversation with Bobey last night.

I see from the news paper that there are some 25-30 people dead also.

Very sad for people who struggle daily in any case.

You are a very warm person, more power to you,

It can't help but give anyone with half a heart a rather helpless feeling to see such devastation at any level of any society, and I certainly feel for these farmers and other folk there.

Civil unrest is bad enough, but the unpredictability and unstoppable force of Nature can be horrendous.
