Tropical Storm Pabuk is coming . . .
« on: January 03, 2019, 04:45:36 PM »

There's a YouTube on the 1st link, of a tanker battling through VERY heavy seas in 'Pabuk'. . . . at 25 seconds  ???

''A warning for heavy downpours and strong gale has been issued for Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, Ranong, Phangnga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun. The Meteorological Department also urged Gulf coast southerners to stay away from the shore as waves of 3-5 metres were expected with a chance of inshore surges.''

Just got back from a bike ride to a breakfast meet at Laem Sing - all the slightly lower beach front areas are under a few inches of water, the sea is brown and the waves coming in are just about 1 metre high - bigger than normal but nothing special.

The main beach area has been largely washed away and there is debris around. My M8's sea front house has lost several trees on the beach frontage and the water is lapping the front patio. On my way back, say 8 km inland, the waterways are lapping their obvious limit and one 29 rai building plot near Nong Bua is flooded. None of this is especially dramatic or interesting but it does illustrate the effect of the tropical depression and the high tide - no rainfall fortunately.

I guess we are at least 800 km away from the storm - if they get 3,4,5 metre waves in the South  ???
