Flash flood warnings

The National Water Command Centre has issued a warning for some provinces in all regions to brace for flash floods from May 27-June 1.

The NWCC said on Tuesday the southwesterly monsoon over Thailand is gaining strength while a low pressure system is moving from the middle of Vietnam to cover Laos and Cambodia.

As a result, there will be heavy rain in some areas from May 27-June 1.

• North - Phetchabun (Lom Kao district);
• Central - Phetchaburi (Tha Yang, Ban Lat and Muang districts), and Prachuap Khiri Khan (Hua Hin and Pran Buri district);
• Northeast - Surin (Muang district), Buri Ram (Muang district) and Ubon Ratchathani (Muang and Phibun Mangsahan districts);
