The Meteorological Department reports that Tropical Storm Noru has formed in the Pacific Ocean and is headed for Thailand. Tropical Storm Noru is projected to make landfall in Thailand on Thursday, two days later than originally predicted.

According to Thailand’s Meteorological Department, the typhoon will bring torrential rainfall and flooding comparable to the Dianmu storm that battered Thailand in September of last year. According to the Meteorological Department, heavy precipitation is anticipated in every region of Thailand from September 28 to October 1.

In the Andaman Sea, a new monsoon is developing, which will be intensified by the tropical storm. Northeastern Thailand’s Srisaket and Roi Et provinces are connected by a 30-meter section of highway that was destroyed by floodwaters yesterday, as seen by spectacular overhead footage. Noru slammed the Philippines on Sunday and Monday after forming in the Pacific Ocean. Five rescue workers were murdered in flooding on the island of Luzon, the most populous island in the Philippines, as a result of heavy rain and strong winds.

Noru is forecast to make landfall in Vietnam tomorrow and northeast Thailand Thursday. Noru has already departed the Philippines and is currently speeding west through the South China Sea at 25 kilometers per hour.

This week, the public is warned to prepare for flash flooding in all regions of Thailand. The typhoon will cause rainfall throughout Thailand, but it is likely to have a direct impact on the northeastern provinces of Mukdahan and Amnat Charoen.
