The Thai Meteorological Department has issued a warning for the North, Northeast, East and Central regions, as it monitors tropical storm Dianmu, which is expected to be downgraded to a tropical depression. The TMD says the storm made landfall over the central Vietnamese province of Quang this morning and is about 260 kilometres southeast of Amnat Charoen province, in north-east Thailand.

With maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometres an hour, the storm is moving west at around 20 kilometres an hour and expected to become a tropical depression as it reaches Amnat Charoen and neighbouring Ubon Ratchathani.

More rain is forecast, with isolated heavy to very heavy downpours for the North, Northeast, East and Central regions, including Bangkok and surrounding areas.
