"There has already been a lot of talk and speculation in the media that the government has failed and that we will be hit by devastating floods again this year. These stories have now gone into the international media and once again I have started to receive emails from people asking if Thailand will be flooded this year. A short answer to that is YES! It is a monsoon country and we are in the middle of the rainy season. It happens every year to varying degrees. We cannot escape it but we can learn to live with it."
