22nd November, 2008

Today's weather;

It's cloudy and wet this morning. It's raining right now, not the hard rain we sometimes get, but just constant, non stop rain. It's still 27.2C. though at 7 am!

Yesterday saw lots of rain, also hard rain showers throughout the day but plenty of dry moments and even a very weak and very watery sun tried to peek through at one stage. Max temp reached 28.5C.

In the face of serious flooding, the Surat Thani provincial authority has declared six districts in the southern province as "disasterhit" areas - Chaiya, Tha Chang, Vibhavadi, Khiri Rat Nikhom, Kanchanadit and Don Sak. Don Sak is where the ferry arrives, next to where we went yesterday in Khanom! We did indeed see a lot of flooding and at some stage the road was flooded as well.

In Bangkok 8 were injured in another bomb attack outside Government House.

Hi Alena,

It looks like it will be wet during the period mentioned.

If you like to dive, you're probably better off at the Phuket side right now and the weather is also nicer there at the moment.
