Northeastern residents warned of tropical, hail storms

The Meteorological Department warned Saturday that tropical storms and hail storms could start hitting northeastern provinces from Sunday.

The department announced in a press statement that the high pressure mass would move down from China to cover the northern part of Thailand on Sunday, and would lead to tropical storms and hail storms.

The storms would begin in the Northeast and would later expand to eastern, central and northern regions, the department said.

Storms batter the Northeast

One person was killed and hundreds of homes were damaged as storms hit the Northeast on Saturday night, with the Meteorological Department warning yesterday of more thunderstorms across upper Thailand.

About 250 houses in Amnat Charoen's Taphan district had their roofs blown off and about a hundred others suffered some sort of damage after being hit by hail and thunderstorms on Saturday night, Amnat Charoen Governor Kitiphum Suwan said yesterday.

The damage is believed to be more widespread than reported and the province is gearing for rescue operations in the affected areas, he said.

The storms also damaged at least a thousand houses in four districts of Si Sa Ket, where a woman in her fifties was reportedly killed when a large tree collapsed on her.

Meanwhile, widely scattered thundershowers, hail and wind gusts are expected in 15 provinces in the Northeast, the East, North and Central regions, including Bangkok, the Meteorological Department warned yesterday.

The haze cleared a little in Chiang Mai yesterday, but today seems worse again. No sign of storms yet. More info at:
