Severe weather from a tropical depression, Typhoon Noru, has flooded provinces in northeastern Thailand, killing one person and injuring two others.

Thailand’s Department of Disaster Prevention reports that 17 provinces in the North, Northeast, and Central Plains have received emergency alerts due to the storm, and all have prepared for the possibility of significant floods in the coming days.

According to the Bangkok Post, a large portion of Amnat Charoen, Si Sa Ket, Yasothon, and Ubon Ratchathani in northeastern Thailand suffered torrential downpours and relentless thunderstorms that resulted in flooding from Wednesday night to Thursday morning.

Despite being downgraded, the storm maintained its intensity and, combined with the southwest monsoon’s effects, will continue to bring more rain to all areas of the country, especially the North and Northeast, where strong winds can be expected in the coming days, according to the forecaster.

From Wednesday night to Thursday morning, Ubon Ratchathani province received more than 100 millimeters of precipitation, and the water levels in the Mun River, the province’s principal waterway, were on track to rise by one to two meters.

In Ubon Ratchathani in the northeast, 1,518 households in 46 settlements have already been rescued.
