Nearly 12,000 more people were displaced by monsoon flooding in Myanmar over the last two days, bringing the current total number of people sheltering in evacuation sites due to floods to more than 38,000. More than 105,000 people have been displaced by flooding since late June, with people formerly displaced in Kachin, Rakhine and Chin states having already returned home when floodwaters receded.
Heavy rains are now severely affecting Mon State, with more than 7,000 people displaced in two days. There has been a landslide in Paung Township with houses buried and at least five reported deaths. Other townships have had houses and a school washed away, roads blocked and some towns and villages almost entirely flooded. Disaster Relief Charity Donate
