Flooding in Myanmar leaves dozens dead

The BBC reports on flooding in Myanmar:

“At least 47 people have died and tens of thousands of people have been affected by flooding in Myanmar.

A state of emergency has been declared in the four worst-hit regions in the west, and the UN has warned the death toll is likely to rise as remote areas are reached by aid agencies.

Some areas have seen 1,000mm (3.3ft) of monsoon rain in the past week.

Floodwaters brought by the same weather system have also killed at least 100 people in India in the past week.”
