Thailand is about to be hit by Tropical Storm Pabuk. According to The Guardian, this is the first time a tropical storm has hit Thailand outside of monsoon season in 30 years.

A representative of the Climate Change and Disaster Center at Rangsit University was quoted by Al Jazeera as saying,

“Pabuk is likely to be the most devastating one to hit the region since 1962. It’s set to (affect) the southern tip of Thailand from Thursday and then careen all the way north.”

Since news of the cyclone’s imminent arrival surfaces, thousands of tourists have since fled popular tourist spots, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, and Koh Samui, the areas expected to be hit by the storm. These tourists have fled to the southern Thai mainland.

Tropical Storm Pabuk is expected to bring heavy rain and waves as high as 7 metres. While the storm is expected to have winds of up to 104km per hour, it is unlikely that this cyclone will escalate into a typhoon.

According to the New Straits Times, winds have also been picking up in Terengganu as the storm draws closer.

So, if you or anyone you know is in Thailand this week, stay safe and take proper shelter!
