The mirror.co.uk is reporting that there are fears for residents and tourists on Koh Samui as the island braces for the onslaught of tropical storm Pabuk.

 

Pabuk has formed within a mass of thunderstorms and could be the first cyclone to hit Thailand in January in 68 years.

 

Southern Vietnam has already been hit by torrential rain and the cyclone is now en route to hit southern Thailand with winds of up to 90 kmh set to batter the south coastal provinces.

Some weather sites are predicting wind gusts up to 150 kph. 😵 We will not know until it arrives.

 

Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

This has the potential to perhaps be a biggy. Shame TV is going to be shut down during the time it hits. Could be people trying to keep up with friends by PM.

Since TV is back, hope you all there can give us some first hand accounts. Happen to be off island this week, so can’t be there to batten down the hatches.
