After days of heavy rain, culminating in a late Friday deluge, the Royal Coast is in the process of mopping up.  With some forewarning, many events were cancelled on Friday.  However vehicles were stranded on flooded roads, especially in Phetchaburi Province; but be warned, there’s more on the way.

Stretches of Phetchakasim Road became unpassable and in the Nam Ya Plong district more than 400 homes have been reported to be suffering flood damage, with waters up to 2-3 metres high and with roads cut off, many residents were forced to walk out.  In addition, farmland and livestock have also been severely affected.

Continuous rain and strong winds are currently forecast for many parts of Thailand.  The Thailand Meteorological Department forecast today (Saturday) that the monsoon trough lies across the lower Central, the upper South and the East, while the strong southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf.

Continuous showers are likely across the country with isolated heavy rain and strong winds possible in the Northeast, the East and the Central, including Bangkok and its vicinity and the South. People in risky areas should beware of severe conditions, the department said.

Strong winds will blow over the Andaman Sea and the upper Gulf with waves 2-3 metres high and more than four metres high in thundershowers. All ships should proceed with caution and keep off thundershowers, the department cautioned.
