The heavy weather is forecast to continue through Sunday (Oct 9-11), Rungrawee Oankhot, Director of the Southern Meteorological Center, West Coast, warned in an announcement earlier today.

“The strong southwest monsoon prevails over the upper Andaman Sea and the upper southwest. This causes the southern and western regions to still have heavy rainfall in some areas in Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun provinces,” Ms Rungrawee noted.

“Beware of the dangers of heavy to very heavy rains that can cause flash floods, and beware of the danger from strong winds by avoiding being in open spaces, under big trees and unsecured  buildings,” she warned.

Wind waves in the Andaman Sea are still strong, with wave heights to reach two to four metres, and above four metres in thunderstorm areas, Ms Rungrawee added.

Small boats should stay ashore during the heavy weather, she added, and urged people to  closely follow announcements from the Thai Meteorological Department (TMD).
