Vice Governor Supoj today (Nov 23) reported that the national office of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) had issued a notice for people in risk areas to beware heavy weather from this coming Monday (Nov 25) through to next Friday (Nov 29).

“Please be careful and follow the heavy rain situation, which my cause flash flooding and strong wind waves from November 25-29,” the DDPM advisory noted.

The warning advised all people in risk areas to beware flash flooding in Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.

“Therefore we ask the people to closely follow the situation and the effects that may occur in the area. For areas near the coast, we request that all hotels in beach areas to inform tourists to be cautious and not to swim during strong wind waves and we seriously advise that all small boats do not put to sea during periods with strong wind waves,” the warning urged.

Well, so far the weather is not answering the warnings. At least not on Phuket. Hardly any rain this week ( unfortunately the Phuket water disaster is deepening). A bit windy, and 2 meters high waves now and than.  That is not really very high.
