The category 3 tropical storm "Noul" was centred about 200km east of Mukdahan in the Northeast of Thailand, at a latitude 16.3 degrees north, longitude 106.8 degrees east, with sustained winds of 75kph, and was expected to hit the Thai province in the afternoon.

 

Noul is moving north from Salawan in central Laos at a speed of 40kph.

 

The storm made landfall in Da Nang, central Vietnam, at 7am on Friday, the Thailand Meteorological Department said.

 

It is forecast to be downgraded to tropical depression when it reaches Mukdahan.

 

The strong southwest monsoon prevails across the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf. Torrential rain with isolated heavy to very heavy rain will be possible in the North, the Northeast, the Central, the East and the South.

 

People in risky areas should beware of the severe rains that may cause flash floods and water runoffs, the department warned. Beware of strong winds by keeping off outdoor places, large trees and unsecured buildings.

 

The affected areas are:

 

Friday/Saturday: Heavy to very heavy rain

North: Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phayao, Lamphun, Lampang, Nan, Phrae, Uttaradit, Sukhothai, Tak, Kamphaeng Phet, Phitsanulok, Phichit and Phetchabun

Strong wind waves are likely in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. In the upper portion of both seas, the waves will likely be 2-4 metres high and more than four metres high during thundershowers. In the lower portion, the waves will likely be about two metres high and in thundershower areas more than three metres high. All ships must keep ashore until Sunday, the department said.
