Weather and water management authorities in Thailand have issued a severe weather alert for the lower half of the country. The warning says Tropical Storm Tembin should reach Vietnam today and will sweep across to southern Thailand tomorrow.
The Thai Meteorological Department says heavy rains and storms will batter Thailand’s southern provinces over the next few days. The alert said the storms would bring downpours, strong winds and choppy seas which are expected to be sporadic through until Friday.
Marine authorities in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province say Hua Hin to Pattaya ferries should start up again tomorrow. Ferries were cancelled yesterday and today because the Thai Meteorological Department had predicted storms would whip up waves as high as three meters.
