PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN — Streets turned into fast-moving rivers as flash floods triggered by the heaviest rainfall in decades struck the southern coastal province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, killing two and affecting thousands.

A toddler drowned and a woman died after being unable to make it to a hospital.
