Its furthest projections only go as far south as Chiang Mai. Don't know why Hua Hin would be getting their knickers in a twist.

There is nothing to suggest that Manghut will affect Hua Hin or indeed most of Thailand!

also here as you can see the huge low pressure system is sucking air from the Andaman Sea right across Hua Hin now:

The effects from this storm won't be direct. As NC says wind fields are enhanced, which potentially can give the already present monsoon a boost. Though with the size of this beast it may be possible that some of North Thailand may get rained on by some of the actual storms cloud debris. There's a lot of moist air above the Andaman with the high sea surface temps and like NC says, it can be drawn in as wind fields increase towards the massive low. So though we wouldn't be getting directly affected by the storm in Hau Hin, the storm will definitely have an effect on the weather here. We don't get the rain as they do in the north/south this time of year but that's going change next week.

After the tsunami, a tsunami warning tower was built in Hua Hin along with the signs pointing to higher ground.  A few years ago, all the schools warned of a tsunami the following day and parents were advised to take their family out of Hua Hin.  My wife was a little panicked at the time.  The warning even hit the TV news.  It turned out that it was predicted by a senior monk who had seen a vision.

 

The FACT is that there is ZERO possibility of a Tsunami in the gulf of Thailand.  The nearest fault line that could possibly affect the gulf is some 10,000 kms away and should an earthquake big enough to cause a tsunami occur, then by the time it reached the gulf, it would be less than 1 metre high!!!

 

I would never ever believe what comes out of the Met office in Thailand.  Foreign meteorological  experts predicted the floods of 2011 months before it happened and warned Thailand of such.  Thailand of course knew better so the warnings were ignored.  Everyone knows what happened next!!

And it's been like that at the same time most days.  It's expected and nothing to do with Manghut.  The rain was causing floods a few days ago before Manghut had even hit the Philippines.  Fortunately with all the drainage work done over the last couple of years, floods are gone within an hour of the rain stopping.
