34 Thai provinces affected by heavy rains and flooding, typhoon ‘Goni’ heads towards Vietnam



Heavy rain overnight has flooded parts of the Wang Nam Khiao district in southern Nakhon Ratchasima caused by run-off from the mountainous areas of the Thap Lan National Park. At least 1 person has been reported dead from the north eastern floods, an 18 year old swept away by sweeping waves of water while driving back to house by motorcycle last night. A bridge across the Huay Yai Tai stream in the town of Udomsap collapsed during last night’s flash floods.

Meanwhile villagers have been killed and others injured due to flash floods in Surat Thani and another person killed in Trang, southern Thailand due to torrential rains, floods and landslides caused by the tropical storms.

Other people have died in Chanthaburi, Prachin Buri and Singburi province. Affected provinces around Thailand include 6 in the northeastern region, another 6 in the eastern region, 4 in the western region, 9 in the central region and 9 in the southern region.

Around Thailand, as of lunchtime today, a total of 91,641 households in 2,341 villages in 152 districts of 34 provinces have been adversely affected by the affects of tropical storms from October 7 – 31. Typhoon Molave passed over Vietnam and then dropped heaving rain in Central Thailand. The current Typhoon Goni, passing over The Philippines today, will also slam into Vietnam this week and drop even more rain as it continues westward, weakening but creating heavy rain and floods in Laos and Cambodia as well.

Forward forecasts suggest that the weakening storm will pass through Central Thailand with Bangkok officials being put on alert for later this week.

October is traditionally Thailand’s wettest month. Typhoon ‘Goni’ is expected to gain strength as if passes through the South China Sea before reaching Vietnam’s coast sometime late Tuesday, early Wednesday.
