Tropical storm Mujigae set to affect Phuket

It seems that Phuket isn’t out of deep water just yet. Reports have come in that thirty-two provinces across Thailand are on high alert for big rains and flash floods following massive storms in the region. Phuket is one of the provinces listed so residents are being urged to exert caution throughout the week.

Such weather conditions have been brought on by tropical storm Mujigae. Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department director-general Chatchai Promlert stated on the weekend that measures have been put in place to deal with the ongoing storm which has been wreaking havoc across the South China Sea.

Provincial disaster prevention and mitigation offices in the 32 affected provinces in Thailand have been asked to closely monitor weather conditions on a constant basis. Special Teams are also ready to help out residents who are in a spot of bother. The heavy downpours are expected to cause landslides in certain locations as well, so all residents of Phuket should be careful in these high risk areas.

Other areas affected in the South are Ranong, Phang Nga, Krabi and Trang. Many regions to the North, Northeast and East of Thailand are also in states of emergency.

The Meteorological Department stated on the weekend that tropical storm Mujigae is now moving west-northwest at around 18kmh. Forecasts indicate that it will move across Hainan Island before making landfall in upper Vietnam. Luckily fallout from the storm shouldn’t affect Phuket too severely for too long, so tourists will be able to enjoy the usual tropical weather in no time at all.
