- +

Another big storm is forming and will start taking its toll on the country on Oct 20, following tropical storm Gaemi which is expected to hit Thailand tomorrow, Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Theera Wongsamut says. 

The second storm of this year will be named Phrapiroon, a Thai name, and it is forecast to deluge almost the same areas expected to be battered by Gaemi _ the lower Northeast, East, Central region and upper South, Mr Theera said.

In preparing for the coming storms, the Royal Irrigation Department was speeding up draining about 44 million cubic metres per day of water off the plains by the eastern side the Chao Phraya River, he said.
