Thai Meteorological Department Warns of Rain, Floods, and Strong Waves

Thailand –

The Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) has warned of rain and possible flash floods in the north and northeastern parts of Thailand along with strong waves in the Andaman Sea in the South.

The TMD announced on Tuesday (June 27th) that Thailand is having more rain with heavy rain in the north and northeast. People should be aware of the possibility of flash floods especially near mountains and river basin areas especially in the north and northeastern parts of Thailand.

Waves in the upper Andaman Sea are up to two meters high and can be more than two meters high in thunderstorms. Boats should progress with caution and avoid thunderstorm areas.

Thailand has had a somewhat calm rainy season so far but that is inspected to intensify in the next several months, according to the TMD. Traditionally, September tends to be the wettest month of the year.

Rainy season in Thailand officially began in late May, as we covered here.
