The Thai Meteorological Department is warning that tropical storm ‘Nuri’ could bring heavy rains and cause flash flooding in at-risk areas across Thailand. A low-pressure system that developed in the Philippine Sea, and was tracked over the central Philippines has moved into the South China Sea, has become a tropical depression.

At 4am today the department officially announced tropical storm Nuri, with maximum sustained winds of about 65 kilometres per hour, was moving northwest at a speed of about 20 kph. The storm is expected to make landfall over south China sometime today or tomorrow. Until June 16 the storm will strengthen, with more rain and isolated heavy to very heavy rains expected in Thailand. People in high-risk areas should prepare for severe conditions.
