BANGKOK - Authorities in Bangkok told people in a densely populated area to prepare for flooding on Tuesday, adding to fears in the Thai capital where three northern districts are partly under water and the army is shoring up defenses to try to save others.

Late on Monday the governor of Bangkok issued a flood warning for Bang Phlad district, which is west of the Chao Phraya river and away from the three northern districts worst hit so far but closer to the commercial heart of the capital.

"I would like to ask people in Bang Phlad district to move your valuables and other belongings to higher ground for your own safety," Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra said.

Bang Phlad district is home to department stores, universities and hospitals. Siriraj Hospital, where Thailand's revered king has been for more than two years, is nearby.
