Flooding Around the World: Ireland, Italy, Thailand

October 26, 2011

It's not uncommon to see flood videos on YouTube, but it's rare to see them trending from three separate regions around the world.

A number of videos are being heavily shared this week that depict flooding in Dublin. Among the most popular is this bystander video shot by a bus rider as the vehicle was supposedly filling with canal water.

Meanwhile, storms in Italy resulted in the flooding of picturesque town Monterosso. This footage is among the most-shared and -viewed in that country today.

(See some more recent footage from the town of Levanto here.)

And we've documented videos from Thailand before, but we're still seeing clips spreading from that region. This video appears to show a crocodile captured in the floodwaters. Over 100 were purported to have escaped into the waters around Bangkok.
