Mulan to hit Thailand’s North, Northeast with heavy to very heavy rain

 (The Nation/ANN) - The tropical storm Mulan is now an active low-pressure cell over South China, upper Myanmar and upper Laos, and is expected to hit North and Northeast on Friday.

The Thai Meteorological Department forecast heavy to very heavy rain in the North and Northeast and warned people to beware of flash floods and runoffs, especially in the foothills near waterways and lowlands.
The following provinces face the risk of flash flooding:

  • North: Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lamphun, Lampang, Phayao, Nan, Phrae, Uttaradit, Tak and Phitsanulok
  • Northeast: Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Nong Khai and Udon Thani

Meanwhile, a moderate southwest monsoon is prevailing over the Andaman Sea, the South and the Gulf of Thailand, with moderate winds creating 2-metre-high waves in the upper Andaman Sea and higher in areas with thundershowers. Boats have been advised to proceed with caution.
