2-year-old relaxes on inflatable raft being pulled across flood

This is the amusing moment a sleepy boy slept on an inflatable raft while being pulled across a flooded road in Thailand. The youngster named Grate, 2, took a quick nap on his floating bed as a motorcycle dragged it along the water following heavy rain in Rayong province on September 7. The boy's mum Siriwimol Yuangyai said: "He looked like he was enjoying the flood." Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia, such as Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, are in the middle of their tropical monsoon rainy season, which lasts from May or June until November. Soaring temperatures reaching 35 degrees Celsius are often followed by powerful tropical storms with thunder, lightning, rain and flash floods which cause rivers to flow faster and become dangerous. This year, meteorologists have blamed climate change for the sustained heavy rain, which has been hitting the Thai capital and provinces around the country causing severe floods for several weeks. Warnings of strong wind and storms were also issued for regions across the northeast, east, and south. Thailand's Center for Climate Change and Disaster claimed the coming months could see heavier, longer rainfalls, due to "climate change." Local media reported that the country has this year seen "an unusually sustained and persistent rainy season."
