Thailand Floods - Update

11 Oct 11

The flood situation in Thailand continues to worsen and it now looks as though Bangkok will be affected.

The Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, warned over the weekend that the government would not be able to contain the waters heading to Bangkok. "The widespread flood problem is reaching crisis level, the worst in decades," she said. ‘'This will have a direct impact on Bangkok. We have to admit that this is more serious than in the past.''1

Gareth Sampson, Managing Director of our Thailand operations, has reported that three (3) major industrial estates were inundated over the weekend and water levels are not expected to drop until after 17/18 October when there will be a high tide. This will affect water flow out of the Chao Praya River. Cunningham Lindsey are despatching experienced flood and business interruption specialist adjusters from Indonesia, Singapore and Australia to assist our Thailand team with assessing losses once the flood waters recede.
