BANGKOK, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- At least 38 people have been reported dead in 13 provinces that were hardest hit by flood during Oct. 10-24, according to Medical Emergency Institute of Thailand (NIEM) Sunday.

The highest death toll of six were reported in each of the provinces of northeastern Nakhon Ratchasima and Buriram as well as central Lop Buri.

Among the dead was a two-year-old boy in central Nontaburi province who drowned at the backyard of his own house.

Several northeastern and central provinces in the country began to see floodwaters last weekend due to heavy monsoon rainfall, with the northeastern Nakhon Ratchasima hit most severely.
