Storm brings heavy rains to many provinces

TROPICAL STORM Son-Tinh is bringing in its wake heavy downpours, leading to warnings in many parts of Thailand.

 

The impacts from the storm were felt in various provinces even before the storm moved from Vietnam to Thailand last night. 

In Pattaya, red flags went up to caution small boats against venturing into the sea. 

 

The Phuket Marine Office also issued a warning about rough sea conditions and emphasised that captains and boat owners who failed to properly address weather risks would face punishment. 

 

On July 5 two boats headed out to the sea despite a warning and sank, causing 47 deaths in Phuket. 

 

The Meteorological Depart-ment yesterday warned that Son-Tinh would cause heavy downpours in many provinces, including Chiang Rai, Phitsanulok, Nong Khai, Udon Thani, Bangkok, Chon Buri, Phuket, Krabi and Trang.

These downpours could cause flash floods and related risks.

 

“The storm’s impacts will last till July 20,” it added. 

 

In Mae Hong Son province, flash floods hit the Thampla-Phasua Waterfall National Park and nearby areas early yesterday. 

 

The raging floods were so ferocious that several devices of the national park’s office were swept away. The park wall also was damaged. 

 

“In our neighbourhoods, three people were trapped by flash floods. We had to help them,” the chief of the national park, Weerachai Mongkhonphan, said.

In the Nakhon Thai district of Phitsanulok province, flooding damaged maize farms and paddy fields.

 

The Nakhon Thai disaster prevention and mitigation office is inspecting the damage so as to provide assistance where necessary.

 

In Phuket province, Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos asked the Royal Thai Navy’s SEALs to help 60 tourists stranded on Koh Racha Yai amid strong winds and waves.

 

The SEALs responded and safely brought the 60 tourists to Phuket’s deep sea port.

No need to worry folks everything is under control. PM Prayut being chairman of every known commission or committee in Thailand happens to be Chairman of the National Water Resources Commission. 

Even though he is in Bhutan he would be briefed constantly on the flooding situation back in Thailand and can rush back if the situation so requires. With his prolific entourage and PR crew he can take full command of any emergency.

Congratulations to the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation!

Finally the government has an accomplishment:
BANGKOK, 13th March 2018 (NNT) – The Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation is planning to carry out cloud seeding operations in the Northeast to alleviate drought conditions, while authorities in the North are on alert against wildfires.

And if it's not that, the satellite tv signal goes. And if the tv doesn't go off because of the wrong kind of rain then it sometimes suffers from the wrong kind of sun and goes off because of sunspots. I originate from the UK where it is known to rain now and then, and the electric stays on and tv works. I'm pension age and never once even when I was a kid did we have the electric go off because it was raining. Nor did we suffer from sunspots.

Thailand has a very, very long way to go before it masters such marvels of the modern world as electricity.

Meanwhile, according to mum on the Isle of Wight , the sun has been out shining away for the last few weeks with temperatures in the high 20's.

 

They don't have girlie bars though because most of the women are the wrong side of 60.
