Warning: Heavy rain, flash floods
The Meteorological Department on Saturday issued a warning for people in the North and Northeast to prepare for widespread scattered rain with heavy falls in some areas and the danger of floods over the next few days.

The department said the Nesat tropical storm prevailing over Vietnam is easing to depression. This will cause widespread scattered rain on the eastern part of the North and the upper part of the Northeastern during this period.

People living near hillsides and waterways in Chiang Rai, Nan, Nong Khai, Buengkan, Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom should prepare for heavy rain and flash flooding, it warned.

Due to the prevailing southwest monsoon over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, there will also be strong wind-generated 2 to 3-metre-high waves in the Andaman Sea. All shipping should proceed with caution and small boats should keep ashore today and the next few days, the department said.
