Storm Watch – 2.40pm

The latest satellite image of ‘Pabuk’ showing the swirling mass of cloud that is now starting to have greater affect on the coastal areas of Nakhon Si Thammarat as it’s poised to make landfall later today. Difficult to define the ‘eye’ of the storm from this satellite image.

Storm Watch – 8.30am

Rough seas off the coast of Nakhon Si Thammarat yesterday afternoon as tropical storm Pabuk approached land. Tens of thousands of tourists have been evacuated from local coastal communities and some tourists have evacuated the popular islands of Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan which are in the path of the monsoon today.

Storm Watch – 8.10am

News in from Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand (off the coast of Chumpon) that it was raining heavily around 4am, then stopped. Then started raining again at 7am this morning. We have Adrian on site on the island who will provide some information as the day goes. The storm is still quite a long way from Koh Tao and the nearby islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. Here’s Koh Tao on a better day!

Storm Watch – 6.30am

‘Pabuk’ is meandering it’s way north-west up the coast from Songkhla towards Nakhon Is Thammarat. The storm seems to be following the shoreline and dumping plenty of rain on the coastal areas. It’s only moving at around 10 kph on its path up the coast. We will have full updates all day with a team of people in strategic locations providing us with pics, video and info throughout the day. Here is the current satellite photo of ‘Prabuk’. For residents on the Andaman Coast, you are unlikely to feel any direct affects from the storm today with a bit of rain likely tomorrow, but unlikely to have ‘severe’ weather conditions.
