Event

Flooding continues to affect at least seven provinces in Thailand as of Thursday, September 5, as Tropical Storm Kajiki moves out of the region. On Wednesday, September 4, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation reported flooding in Amnat Charoen, Khon Kaen, Phichit, Phitsanulok, Roi Et, Ubon Ratchathani, and Yasothon. Over 1000 people have been evacuated and over 2800 families have been impacted. Reinforcement efforts to prevent further flooding are ongoing in some areas, particularly in Sukhothai province. Transportation disruptions, including inundated roads, have been reported. In Ubon Ratchathani, parts of Highway 2050 between Ban Yang Kradao and Tha Muang have been closed after being submerged in under 50 cm (20 in) of water. Similar road closures are possible throughout northern and eastern parts of the country.

Further monsoon rains are forecast across northern and northeastern Thailand from Thursday through Tuesday, September 10. Isolated heavy rain may cause additional flooding and damages. Thailand's Meteorological Department has advised residents in lowland areas to prepare for severe conditions from flash floods and water runoff.

Context

Tropical cyclones and typhoons are common in the western Pacific and the South China Sea from June through November.

Advice

Individuals in areas forecast to be affected by the storm are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
