Tropical storm warning issued for Thailand

Published on : Wednesday, October 30, 2019

The Met department on Wednesday issued a tropical storm warning for provinces in the East, lower Northeast, the lower Central and the upper South of Thailand. The department has predicted that similar conditions will arise on Thursday as well in the said regions.

 

 

Met experts pointed out that the storm is caused due to a category 2 depression over the middle China Sea that had grown into a category 3 tropical storm.

 

 

On Wednesday, the storm was around 30 km east of Vietnam. It was heading west and expected to cause heavy landfall later in the day. Four regions of Thailand are expected to witness isolated heavy to very heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday.

 

 

Flash floods and runoff can also be experienced during this period, said the department.

 

 

Earlier, a fierce storm brought down many high-voltage power poles and also caused widespread blackouts in the Phetchaburi region, particularly in Ban Laem district.

 

 

The storm hit around 10.45 pm on Tuesday causing heavy rain and strong winds. As many as 34 high-voltage electricity poles and nine transformers got damaged during the storm at tambon Bang Khrok in Ban Laem.

 

 

The roads were chockablock due to traffic and areas also suffered widespread blackouts.

 

 

As per the Provincial Electricity Authority’s Phetchaburi branch office, Repair crews from Ban Laem and neighbouring districts worked to restore power.

 

 

Director of the engineering and electric service section of PEA’s zone 1 in the south, Witthawat Boonlert, said that they cleared the road as soon as they were informed and also replaced the damaged power poles.
