The category 3 tropical storm, "Noul", is due in the middle of the South China Sea and will make landfall over Da Nang, in central Vietnam and then move to Mukdahan in northeastern Thailand, the Thailand Meteorological Department said at 4am on Friday (September 18).

On September 19-20, the storm will move through the northern region into Myanmar. Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon across the Andaman Sea, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand will intensify and bring more rain over the country. Torrential rains with strong winds are possible. People in risky areas should beware of the severe conditions that may cause flash floods and water runoffs.

In the upper portion of the Andaman Sea and the Gulf, winds will be stronger and waves will rise 2-4 metres high and above four metres during thundershowers. All ships have been advised to keep ashore.
