Thailand’s Yingluck Says Inner Bangkok Will Be Safe From Floods

October 12, 2011

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Parts of the Thai capital Bangkok may be affected by floods later this week, though the city’s commercial and tourist districts will remain safe, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said.

Bangkok’s outer suburbs “may be at risk to be flooded,” Yingluck said today. “But the amount of water won’t be much. But the inner part of Bangkok, I believe it should be safe.”

Yingluck said there was no reason to declare a state of emergency in the capital.
