BANGKOK, 1 October 2013 – The National Disaster Warning Center has warned residents in several northern and northeastern provinces to brace for flash floods and landslides during September 30 to October 1.

Provinces at risk of severe flooding include Mukdaharn, Kalasin, Nong Khai, Nan, Phrae, Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son. Residents in affected areas have been advised to closely follow weather updates and monitor the situation.

According to the Meteorological Department, typhoon Wutip from the South China Sea is set to make landfall in Vietnam on Monday evening before bringing heavy rainstorms to the upper parts of Thailand.

The Southwesterly winds covering the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand will also strengthen, causing wet conditions in the South. Strong winds are expected to generate high waves off both southern coasts and all shipping should proceed with caution during the next two days.
