The bodies of the two women who went missing after their bus was washed off a road in Nakhon Si Thammarat were found on Wednesday morning.

While the bus was returning to Surat Thani, it slid from the roadside on the flooded part of the road in front of a reception home for homeless people in Ban Khao Fai and was swept away by run-off at 11pm on Tuesday.
Officials managed to rescue the bus driver and 49 passengers but the two women went.
The floodwaters subsided to a shallow level in the morning.
