Evacuation plans are being drawn up for thousands of residents in the path of tropical storm Noul, which is due to hit the Northeast as early as Friday and then cover Thailand this weekend.

 

The government has ordered the Disaster Prevention chief and provincial governors to prepare teams and machines to reduce loss of life and damage to property.

 

The Meteorological Department warned the storm is strengthening as it barrels towards Vietnam and Laos and could become a typhoon by the time it reaches Thailand.

 

Residents in flood-prone areas have been warned to beware of flash-flooding.

 

Deputy Interior Minister Nipon Bunyamanee has ordered local authorities to monitor the situation closely and be ready to evacuate residents, especially those living in landslide and flood-prone areas.

"The Meteorological Department warned the storm is strengthening as it barrels towards Vietnam and Laos and could become a typhoon by the time it reaches Thailand."   Generally, nearly most of the time, typhoons and cyclones loose power/strength once they hit land, but there is a lot of rain.  Said typhoon/cyclone generally becomes a tropical depression/storm over land, but may reform and strengthen if it moves over the ocean again.  Those of us who have lived or do live in northern Australia know this only too well.
