In how many countries, does the President/Prime Minister have to order government bureaucrats to prepare for bad weather?  During the current flood crisis in parts of eastern Australia, the various emergency services knew what thay had to do, and needed no orders from the Prime Minister nor state Premiers.  When the extent of the devestation became known, the Australian Army offered, or was asked, to help clean up.  No orders from the political top were required

It is election time next year.

Most of the press recently, regarding Uncle Tu, has been 'floss' showing him to be strong, decisive and being a good General.

It will all stop when he is elected again.

Officials have been directed to inspect and remove any unsecured billboards or buildings that could endanger people during severe storms. 

 

They haven't had enough time.  Prevention and measures at the last moment.. Do it at last minute.

 

 

At least, maybe the rain will help to mitigate the killer smog season.

... well, they got this one right, blew in pretty nasty in Phayao around 3:30 pm, could hear one or two mighty gusts coming from afar, one took out the juice accordingly. 

Storm split a tree and the falling part severed the powerline to my crib only ... no sweat, fixed easy enough, 555 ...

Initiative is frowned upon in Thailand. Thais need to be told to do something by those above, rather than take responsibility for their own actions.

Yet, in these weather related incidents you'll find that Thais rely largely on their familial and closer community senses to get by - less the authoritarian set. This is the manner in which it's been practiced for ages.

Driving back from Phichit to Phitsanulok this afternoon I thought there was a large fire ahead and the sky was full of smoke. Turned out to be a gale blowing and debris flying everywhere, even pushed the car half into the next lane but lucky nobody was near me
