The Thailand Floods on Google Maps
The floods in Thailand now look set to affect the capital, Bangkok. The government has decided to open flood gates to try and control the flow of the flood waters through the city's canals.
The likely affect will be flooding around the canals and officials have urged residents in seven Bangkok districts to move their possessions to higher ground.
The Thailand Flood Monitoring System is using Google Maps to show the areas currently affected by the flooding.
Google Crisis Response has also created a Google Map for the 2011 Thailand Floods.
