We're getting dumped on over here by the bucket load for the past hour. Local flooding etc. I watched this on the radar coming across the gulf from the Hua Hin side. Did you get anything out of it?

It was needed here as very dry the past two weeks. Pete :cheers:

We had fairly heavy rain for almost 2 hours so it must be localised.

28 provinces on alert for deluge

Published: 17/07/2018 at 05:12 AM
Newspaper section: News https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera ... recent_box

The country is on alert this week as heavy rains are forecast and possibly flash floods that could cause havoc including overflows and rough seas.

Authorities in 28 provinces have been contacted by the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) to prepare for the deluge, forest run-off and strong storms that could cause waves of up to 3 metres from Sunday to Thursday.

Officials were instructed to follow up on local water conditions and remain vigilant about possible safety risks.

Rescue units have been organised to deal with various situations so they can be deployed around the clock and boats given thorough safety checks, officials said.

DDPM director-general Chayapol Thitisak said the monsoon is now swiping Myanmar, upper Thailand and Laos. Heavy downpours are also expected over much of Thailand.

Six of the 28 provinces on high alert are in the North. They are Tak, Phitsanulok, Phichit, Phetchabun, Nan and Nakhon Sawan. Eight more in the Northeast are Sakon Nakhon, Udon Thani, Kalasin, Mukdahan, Nakhon Phanom, Yasothon, Roi Et and Maha Sarakham.

The five provinces in the Central Plains are Kanchanaburi, Sa Kaeo, Chantaburi, Prachin Buri and Trat. They other nine in a state of readiness are in the South: Chumphon, Surat Thani, Phatthalung, Ranong, Phuket, Phangnga, Krabi, Satun and Trang.

In Sakon Nakhon, officials were racing against time to siphon water from Nong Han lake so it can receive more water from the Phu Phan mountains following hours of persistent rain.

The province was hit by a deluge in July 2016, the worst flood record there in 40 years.

Mr Chayapol said the Marine Department, and Marine Police and Department of Fisheries were told to patrol the sea to warn ships to take the necessary safety precautions.

Wow. Proving once again how sensible most of the denizens of the HH Forum are in their choice of abode.

Prayers for those in peril in the coming days in other provinces. :?

It's getting even more complicated as a fast moving tropical storm is about to cross northern Vietnam and hit the northeast somewhere in the next four days. Stay tuned to your weather links. Pete :cheers:

Online news: https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera ... recent_box

Tropical storm Son-Tinh landed in Vietnam and was expected to downgrade to a depression as it moved into the upper Northeast of Thailand on Thursday, with the forecast for heavy rain and flood warnings for most of the country.

Wanchai Sakudomchai, director-general of the Meteorological Department, said Son-Tinh hit Vinh city of Vietnam about 4am, bringing winds of around 70 kilometres per hour. It was moving westward at 20kph and expected to become a depression and then a low pressure system.

He warned of heavy rain, flash floods, runoff and overflowing streams in the North, Northeast, East and South on Thursday.

In the North, the warning was for Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Kamphaeng Phet, Lampang, Lamphun, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Phayao, Phetchabun, Phichit, Phitsanulok, Phrae, Sukhothai, Tak and Uttaradit provinces.

In the Northeast it was for Amnat Charoen, Bung Kan, Buri Ram, Chaiyaphum, Kalasin, Khon Kaen, Loei, Mukdahan, Nakhon Phanom, Nakhon Ratchasima, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Nong Khai, Sakon Nakhon, Si Sa Ket, Surin, Ubon Ratchathani, Udon Thani and Yasothon.

In the East, Chanthaburi and Trat provinces were likely to be affected.

For the South the same warning was for Krabi, Phangnga, Phuket and Ranong.

On Friday, more rain is predicted in the North and Northeast. In the North, warnings were issued for Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Lamphun, Mae Hong Son, Nan, Phayao, Phrae and Tak.

In the Northeast, impacts would remain in Bung Kan Loei, Nakhon Phanom, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Nong Khai, Sakon Nakhon and Udon Thani.

Small boats were advised to stay ashore in the East and the eastern coast of the South, where the southwesterly monsoon is expected to bring heavy rain and stir up high waves until Sunday.
