Thailand Flood Warning: 15 provinces warned of flash floods, landslides

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

The Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department has issued a warning for 15 provinces, five each in the North, Central and South, to beware of flash floods and landslides, department chief Chayapol Thitisak said this morning.

Mr Chayapol said continuous intensive rains and accumulated rainwater make these provinces vulnerable to being hit with flash floods and landslides.

The 15 provinces are Mae Hong Son, Chiang Rai, Nan, Tak and Phetchabun in the North; Kanchanaburi, Sa Kaeo, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat in the Central; and, Ranong, Phangnga, Krbi, Trang and Satun in the South.

Going to Thailand soon ? Take care. More heavy rains and flooding forecast over the next few days in all provinces.

Temporary Crisis Center orders all provinces prepare for flooding
4 September 2018
Thailand’s Temporary Crisis Center has ordered all provinces to prepare appropriate plans as more rains are forecast to hit the north, northeast, east and south between today and September 8.

The Temporary Crisis Center has indicated that heavy rains in the region over the past seven days have necessitated major dams in the Lao PDR to increase discharges. The higher release rates have put Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Nakhon Panom, Mukdaharn and Ubon Ratchathani at risk of flooding...

Floods wreak havoc in South, more rain to come
19 December 2018
FLOODS HAVE ravaged three southern provinces over the past few days, leaving behind widespread damage and one person missing.

The hard-hit provinces are Nakhon Si Thammarat, Surat Thani and Phatthalung, according to the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.

“We are now trying to locate the victim who went missing in Nakhon Si Thammarat,” the department said yesterday without giving any further details.

The department estimated that the floods had disrupted the lives of more than 166,000 people in the three southern provinces since Saturday.

Nakhon Si Thammarat was the hardest hit of the provinces. Due to high flood levels, many families have been evacuated and several schools closed, while train services have been rescheduled because some sections of track were swamped.

The Meteorological Department said downpours would continue across the South under the influence of a monsoon storm.

Phatthalung Governor Kukiat Wongkrapun yesterday warned locals to watch out for more flash floods, as further scattered rain was still likely.

“People living along waterways have to watch out because the weather bureau suggests that more heavy rain is coming,” he said.

He also warned locals living in mountainous areas to beware of possible landslides.

According to the Meteorological Department, Chumphon, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun are also at risk of severe flooding.

Tens of thousands move to shelters before storm hits home
3 Jan 2019 at 19:57
Residents living on coastal areas in the southern region are leaving home for shelters ahead of the arrival of tropical storm Pabuk, which is expected to reach the shore on Friday. The attention is on Nakhon Si Thammarat as forecasters of the Meteorological Department warned on Thursday that the storm will make landfall in the province on Friday night.
The latest warning issued by the weather forecast agency at 5pm said the storm in the Gulf of Thailand was moving west with maximum winds of 65km per hour. The eye of the storm was 500km southeast of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

in phuket we have small boat warnings out, but yesterday afternoon on the west coast all was good,
this morning overcast but no winds
Tropical storm “PABUK” over the lower Gulf has its maximum sustained winds of 75 km/hr and is moving west-northwest slowly expectedly to make landfall evening 4 January over Nakhon Si Thammarat. By 3-5 January 2019, it will affect widespread rains with torrential downpours much of the South east coast. People beware of the severe conditions. The strong winds are forecast with waves up to 3-5 meters high in the Gulf and 2-3 meters high in the Andaman sea. All ships in the Gulf keep ashore lasting 5 January 2019. The strong high-pressure system still covers upper Thailand with cool to cold spells. People are advised to keep healthy"

Any travelling in the region should be aware that many flights and ferry services have been cancelled.
There is also a risk of damage, storm surge and inundation in coastal areas on islands and mainland.

As a tropical storm threatened to hit Thailand for the first time in more than 50 years a Facebook post explained what happened in 1962.

Thailand suffered a huge disaster when tropical storm Harriet hit the gulf of Thailand coast from Prajuab Khiri Khan to Narathiwat.

The Nakhon Sri Thammarat page said that the center of the storm was in that province. The storm was 300 kilometers across and had winds of 95 kmph.
There was no warning system in place when the storm hit on October 25th 1962.
