Tropical Storm Tembin will cause heavy rains in Chumphon, Surat Thani, Prachuap Khiri Khan and even Bangkok
Typhoon Tembin may be weakening since it caused massive devastation in the Philippines last week, but that is not likely to stop it still being classified as a tropical storm when it hits Chumphon and Surat Thani tomorrow, Wednesday, December 27th.
According to the Thai Meteorological Department (TMD), Tropical Storm Tembin is expected to hit southern Thailand in Chumphon, Surat Thani and Prachuap Khiri Khan provinces causing heavy rains. As a typhoon, it caused the deaths of more than 230 people in the Philippines.
Heavy rains in Chumphon, Surat Thani and Prachuap Khiri Khan could result in flash floods, so residents are being warned to pay attention to rapidly rising waters.
That rain will likely also move on to other provinces affecting places as far north as Bangkok in the coming days.
Meanwhile, a severe weather warning has been issued by the TMD, as well as a warning that small boats should stay ashore until the tropical storm passes by due to the strong winds and high waves that are expected.
