Jack Kurtz's Message: Thailand, and most of mainland Southeast Asia, are in the midst of an epic drought. The last three rainy seasons have seen below normal rainfall totals, last year's rainy season was far below normal. Thailand has an extensive networks of reservoirs, dams and canals that distribute water throughout country but most of the reservoirs are empty and there's no water to push through the canals.

Farmers and people outside of Bangkok are struggling to find water and hope to hang on until the next rainy season is supposed to start, in June. If the rains don't come and farmers can't plant their 2016 rice crop, the drought will grow much worse and it could raise the spectre of food shortages.

I've relocated to Bangkok, Thailand. I'm working on stories and freelancing. If you need a photographer in Thailand, give me a shout.

Thanks for looking,
