The Big Mango got a battering last night whilst rains are expected sometime on Phuket during Saturday and Sunday, but not the torrential rains that hit Bangkok.

Heavy rains and strong winds hit several areas of the capital last night.

A bus stop on Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road, outside the head office of petroleum giant PTT, collapsed as a result of strong winds.

The Meteorological Department warned of the storms yesterday and say there are more summer storms, strong winds and possibly hailstorms in all regions of the country – particularly the North, eastern seaboard and Central regions, including Bangkok and its satellite provinces – forecast for today.

“Residents in those areas should avoid being outdoors, under large trees or billboards that could collapse in strong winds,” the department said in its statement.

The agency said the storms resulted from the high-pressure ridge covering northern Thailand and the low-pressure ridge covering southern Thailand.

Rainstorms and strong winds were also reported in Chai Nat, Kamphaeng Phet, Tak, and Pattaya City in Chon Buri on Friday afternoon and evening.
