Thais waded through flooded streets Thursday, their belongings and children perched on their shoulders, as relentless floodwaters inched toward Bangkok.

In some residential areas, scattered rooftops peeked through muddy waters.

In others, floodwaters gushed into homes, forcing residents to gingerly climb out of apartments through windows.

It's the worst flood to hit the country in half a century. By Thursday, the death toll had risen to 320, with nearly 9 others million affected, authorities said.

"The situation is very uncertain as people are rushing to their homes to protect their belongings," said Natasha Cheung, who works in northern Bangkok for the Christian aid organization World Vision.

Flooding started two months ago, and the number of affected areas has grown as more rains has lashed the region.

Officials predicted that water will enter northern Bangkok Friday.

'The government has reinforced the city's floodwalls in an attempt to prevent the floods pouring into the densely populated city from the central plains, which are several metres under water in places.'
