Doksuri dumping on north-east Thailand

From The Nation
Tropical storm Doksuri has weakened into a depression and unleashed heavy downpours in several North-eastern and Northern provinces on Friday night, resulting in floods in many provinces yesterday morning.

Other provinces were making preparations yesterday in expectation of more rain.

The Thai Meteorological Depart-ment reported that Doksuri was downgraded from a typhoon to a tropical storm when it swept through Vietnam on Friday. It reached Vien-tiane in Laos early yesterday and was downgraded to a depression when it reached Nan at 10am yesterday.

Chaiyaphum, Loei, Phitchit, Phitsanulok, Nakhon Phanom and Kalasin were among provinces hit by heavy rains because of the influence of Doksuri.

In Chaiyaphum, mountain run-off hit three villages and inundated a road in Muang district yesterday morning.
