A vast open area near Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand, is littered Tuesday with piles of logs following some of the country's worst flooding in decades. Massive mudslides contributed to the deaths of more than 400 people. Large-scale logging has all but destroyed the country's forests and also contributed to the toll from mudslides when huge logs crashed into huts. The last official death toll was 429, with 380 still missing and more than 2,000 injured. Prime Minister Chatichai Choonhaven has proposed a revocation of logging concessions nationwide and has requested aid from other countries. The United States and Britain have contributed more than $40,000 in aid.
