A Thai woman squats and prays, holding her lighted krathong behind the net on the banks of the fast and full flowing Chao Phraya River, in a subdued Loy Krathong festival, marked by caution near the river bank. Official celebrations for the Loy Krathong festival to cast away worries and offer apology to the river were canceled in the flooded areas, due to concerns that the krathong lotus-shaped candle-lit floats would clog up canals and waterways, hampering flood relief effort. The central area of the Thai capital of Bangkok remains threatened by the waters and large areas remain underwater.
