CHIANG RAI – The Meteorological Department has issued warnings for people in Chiang Rai and other Northern Provinces to remain on alert for flash floods, as heavy rain continues in these regions.

According to meteorologists, the monsoon trough is now moving its way across Myanmar and Laos, bringing heavy rain to the upper regions of Thailand.

The southwesterly wind in the Andaman Sea and Gulf of Thailand has also been contributing to a higher amount of rain in the North and Northeast.

Those living in the provinces of Mae Hong Son, Chiang Rai, Tak, Kamphaeng Phet, Udon Thani, Nong Khai, Bueng Kan, Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom have been told to brace for mudslides and flash floods.
