10 southern provinces get flood warning


The Thai Meteorological Department has warned 10 southern provinces to be cautious about heavy rain and high waves on Thursday and tomorrow, December 25.

A depression in the South China Sea is expected to move across to Thailand on Thursday, while a northeast monsoon is coming to the Gulf of Thailand, increasing rains in the South.

The 10 provinces are Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, Ranong and Phang Nga.

The rain can generate flash floods in the areas near the mountains and the rivers, the department said.

It warned people who live in those areas to be careful and monitor the situation via website www.tmd.go.th, or call hotline 1182.
