Thailand hit by worst monsoon in 50 years

More than two million people affected and tens of thousands evacuated in crisis that now threatens Bangkok.

    More than two million people have been affected by widespread flooding in Thailand in what is the worst monsoon season in 50 years.

    Tens of thousands of Thais have been evacuated from their homes as swollen rivers and burst through flood-control dams and dykes.

    It is now feared flooding will spread to the capital, Bangkok.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Ayutthaya, one of the worst-hit areas.
