Submission + - 1000 Boat Armada to save Thailand (mcot.net)

stub667 writes: For the last several days, Thailand has been using an innovative strategy to drain flood waters from the inundated country. A fleet of 1000 boats are moored yet running their engines to push the water out to sea. From an earlier report in The Nation from Oct 11th "[Science & Technology Minister] Plodprasop said that this voluntary base project would help drain water three times faster, from two knots to six knots, and prevent floodwater from pouring into Bangkok City"
