Bangkok: The death toll in the month-long floods in Thailand has climbed to 68, the interior ministry said Thursday.

The monsoon-induced floods have ravaged 359 districts in 46 provinces. They still rage in 93 districts of 22 provinces, affecting some 230,000 households, said Chatchai Promlert, director general of the ministry's Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.

The northeastern provinces of Prachin Buri and Chachoengsao are the worst hit, Xinhua reported.

The authorities Tuesday put the death toll at 61.

Earlier this month, Tourism and Sports Minister Somsak Phurisisak said that the floods have damaged the tourism industry and destroyed property worth $22.6 million.
