Regions on alert for heavy rain, strong winds

Regions across the country have been put on alert for heavy rains and wind after weather forecasters warned that an active low pressure system will affect northern and central regions from August 10-13.
A tropical storm over Vietnam and the southwest monsoon dominate the weather pattern across the country, according to an alert issued by the Meteorology and Hydrology Department.
Wind and heavy rain is expected in the capital and the provinces of Phongsaly, Huaphan, Xieng Khuang, Vientiane, Xaysomboun, Borikhamxay, Khammuan, and Savannakhet.
The weather office has warned people to be alert to the possibility of flash floods and landslides and to protect their property and livestock.
The public has been advised to monitor weather forecasts and levels of the main rivers including the Mekong.
Warnings are issued through various meteorology and hydrology channels, as well as on Facebook, websites, radio broadcasts, television and media agencies to let people know the latest information, the department said.
On August 8-10, weather forecasters warned that heavy rains and strong winds were set to hit the country’s central and southern regions.
The warning came as heavy downpours hit many parts of the country including some parts of the capital, but officials have not received reports of damage.
