Recommended Posts

THE METEOROLOGICAL DEPARTMENT HAS ISSUED A WARNING TO PEOPLE IN THE NORTHEAST & NORTH TO BE ON LOOKOUT FOR FLOODS

A depression over Vietnam's Tangkia (ตังเกี๋ย) Gulf at 7 pm last night had an epicentre located roughly 250 kilometres northeast of Nakhon Phanom. The storm was expected to move westward into Vietnam's Win (วิญ) city, which would cause heavy to very heavy rain in many areas of Thailand's north-eastern region and northern region. People in Nong Khai, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Mukdahan, Roi Ed, Kalasin, Nan, Phrae, and Phetchabun are being warned to be on the lookout for flash floods, forest floods, and overflowing of waterways.

Well here in Nong Khai we had a wild night.Holy shit.The only time that comes even close was October 1987 in London.Winds like i've never seen in Thailand.Trees down everywhere and roofs missing.We're OK.All along the main road is hazardous due to tree limbs blocking the bike lane and so bikers swerving out into the traffic flow.

Glad that you are OK

we do not want a catastrophy like the one in Louisiana/Mississippi, but rice farmers in many parts of Buriram/Surin would love to get one day(night) of big rain, to enable them to throw chemie and save their rice for this year!

last night here was rain, but very moderate and short!
