The Meteorological Department on Friday warned residents of 12 southern provinces to brace themselves for heavy rains and possible flash flooding from Friday to Tuesday. The department said a strong northeast monsoon over the Gulf of Thailand and the South would unleash heavy rains and strong winds in Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, Phangnga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun.
The warning said strong winds with waves 2-3 metres high are likely in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. All ships should proceed with caution, and small boats along the Gulf of Thailand should be kept ashore.
People should also be cautious of inshore waves, the department added.
