More than 1,000 people from across the country, mostly from southern Thailand, have died in the country’s floods.

The government says the death toll could be higher as many bodies have not been recovered.

The country is also facing an economic crisis.

(ABC News: David O’Brien)At least 11 people were killed when a mudslide killed at least 10 people and injured hundreds of others, according to Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha.

The floodwaters rose on Saturday night and left residents trapped under trees and roads, forcing them to abandon their homes and leave behind possessions.

The death toll from Saturday night’s flooding has risen to at least 11.

The flooding was expected to continue for several days.

The prime minister said Sunday that more than 1.5 million people have been evacuated from areas of the country that were hit hardest by the flooding.

“We are all very worried and are calling on the people to help us in our efforts to save lives,” he said.

More than 200,000 residents have been ordered to evacuate their homes, and authorities have issued a total of more than 200 emergency declarations.

Thousands of people have sought shelter at local mosques and churches.

The prime Minister has appealed to the public to remain calm, and he urged people to take care of themselves.

“Please help us save lives.

Please keep your families together,” he tweeted.

Authorities say more than 20,000 homes have been destroyed and more than 6,000 are in need of repair.
