Tropical Storm Nuri ripped China’s Guangdong province over the weekend; its wider effects causing storms in Northern Thailand. And a strong southwest monsoon in the Andaman Sea brought on rainstorms in other parts of the country. Hundreds of homes have been damaged from the storms and many streets have flooded.
From Udon Thani in the north to Surat Thani in the south, 324 homes were damaged from storms. In the Isan region, certain areas of Korat were flooded after hours of heavy rain on Sunday. In Saraburi, Central Thailand, many vehicles with flooded engines stalled out, causing a traffic jam on the Mittraphap Highway.
The Thai Meteorological Department says that isolated heavy rainstorms are still expected throughout the country today and tomorrow, warning about the risk of flash floods. The monsoon, with the low-pressure covering Laos and Vietnam, will cause heavy to very heavy rains in Thailand. The monsoon is expected to weaken by the end of the week.
