The deluge has now reached Bangkok, with rising water and associated problems affecting most of the city’s 10 million residents. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said that parts of the capital could be inundated by up to 1.5 meters of water and remain flooded for up to a month.

FEMA’s Waffle House Index – Your Tax Dollars At Work

BizJournals reports –

When the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency assesses damage after a major hurricane he has a lot of statistics and scientific models at his fingertips to determine hardest-hit areas, but one of his top barometers is Norcross, Ga.-based Waffle House. The company has built good will within communities by being open during disasters. If the restaurant is closed or serving a limited menu, emergency responders know things are bad, reports the Wall Street Journal. “If you get there and the Waffle House is closed?” FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate has said. “That’s really bad. That’s where you go to work.” Waffle House Inc.’s 1,600 restaurants stretch from the mid-Atlantic to Florida and across the Gulf Coast, where hurricanes are most likely to strike, the WSJ reports. The company is known for staying open to serve storm-weary residents, utility crews and emergency workers. The company has a color-coded system federal officials watch. Green means the restaurant is offering a full menu and lights are on. Code yellow signals a limited menu and power is coming from a generator, at best, and food supplies are potentially low. Red means the restaurant is closed, a sign of severe damage or unsafe conditions, the WSJ reports.

European Flooding on The Big Picture [pics]

Over the past month, heavy rainfall from different storms across parts of Europe has caused massive amounts of flooding – some water moving slowly across river plains and farmland, some moving swiftly through cities and villages. Dozens have lost their lives, many thousands evacuated their homes, some repeatedly – Poland in particular is suffering its worst flooding in decades. More recently, parts of Spain and France have experienced flash floods that have carried away people and vehicles. Collected here are some images of the flooding in Europe from the past several weeks. (42 photos total)
