Nearly one million people have now been affected by widespread flooding across Myanmar since June, officials say.

 

The government says up to 100 people have died and 1.2 million acres of rice fields have been destroyed.

 

Though schools in some areas have reopened, fresh warnings have been issued to people living in the Irrawaddy Delta region.

 

Myanmar (also known as Burma) always sees flooding in the monsoon season but this is some of the worst in decades.
