          Thailand death toll hits 356, flooding could last till December
          October 22, 2011 | 6:36 am

          REPORTING FROM NEW DELHI, INDIA -- Thailand, reeling from its worst flooding in decades, received more bad news Saturday as the death toll since July rose to 356 and the prime minister warned that the inundation could last an additional six weeks.

          Authorities are carrying out a high-risk maneuver this weekend, attempting to channel floodwaters through Bangkok canals and out to sea from the deluged central plains. The capital has already seen waist-high water in its northern neighborhoods amid fears the heart of downtown could be next if the diversion fails.

          "Bangkok must open all floodgates to allow the water through," said Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in a nationwide radio address. "There is a huge volume of run-off water from the north and we can't effectively block it but can only slow the flow.
