SOUTH WARNED OF FIRST TROPICAL STORM SINCE 1962 DISASTER
Southern Thailand is expected to be hit directly by a tropical storm for the first time in 56 years later this week, officials said Tuesday.

The Meteorological Department said the tropical depression Thirtysix will affect the south Wednesday to Saturday after reaching the Gulf of Thailand tomorrow. The Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute said it’s likely to strengthen into a tropical storm as it crosses over the mainland and into the Andaman Sea starting Thursday.

According to the institute, the South was last directly hit by a tropical storm in 1962 when Harriet made landfall at Laem Talumphuk in Nakhon Si Thammarat before going on to devastate 12 provinces and kill more than 900 people.

The storm might cause sea waves to reach over 5 meters, and all disaster agencies have been advised to prepare.

Forecasters at the UN’s Global Disaster Alerting and Coordinating System said the tropical depression already became a tropical storm this morning and winds will peak at 83kph on Thursday.

The storm is expected to affect up to 5.3 million people in Thailand and Myanmar.

There are some pics of the high tide and storm waves yesterday on the BS FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bangsaphanfans/

Again a lot of rain overnight but no major damage here. Those fortunate enough to have beachfront houses got a bit wetter than usual.
