Surat THANI: Flash floods in southern Thailand washed out a bridge on the country's main north-south highway yesterday, backing up traffic for 200km as the death toll from days of unseasonable rain rose to 25, media reported.
Television pictures showed abandoned cars submerged in murky waters in Prachuap Khiri Khan province where a torrent washed out a bride on the main road linking Bangkok to the south, causing the 200km tailback, media reported. The railway link to the south, and Malaysia, beyond has been severed for days.
