Mass evacuation has been ordered for people living in six coastal districts of Nakhon Si Thammarat where powerful tropical storm Pa Buk was predicted to make landfall tomorrow night.

 

Governor Chamroen Thippayapongthada said the evacuation must be completed tonight as 190 temporary shelters have been hurriedly set up with a combined capacity to accommodate more than 86,000 people.

 

Four deputy governors have been dispatched to the coastal districts to oversee the evacuation and to coordinate with officials from various agencies to ensure smooth preparations to cope with the intense tropical storm.
