Bangkok – Deputy government spokesman Lt. Gen. Werachon Sukondhapatipak said prime minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is concerned over the welfare and safety of people in risk areas of tropical storms expected in the upper parts of Thailand during March 14 and March 19.
The storms are expected to begin to gather in the northeastern and eastern regions of the country and to prevail over the northern and central regions and Bangkok and outlying provinces at a later date.
The premier called on villagers to closely follow the radio news about the advice of the authorities such as the Meteorological Department. The villagers are advised to refrain from being in open spaces or under big trees or unstable signboards or buildings. Farmers are advised to brace for possible damage to their farm goods.
