BANGKOK,THAILAND - NOVEMBER 2 : A Thai monk sleeps on a train as it makes its way on limited stops through the flooded region in the Laksi area of the capital on November 2, 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand. Thousands of flood victims have been forced to take shelter at crowded evacuation centers around the capitol city. Hundreds of factories have been closed in the central Thai province of Ayutthaya and Nonthaburi and millions of tons of rice has been damaged. Thailand is experiencing its worst flooding in over 50 years, affecting more than nine million people and claiming over 400 lives in flood-related incidents since late July according to the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation.
