Myanmar is preparing for Tropical Storm Pabuk as it makes its way westward into the Gulf of Thailand. The system is due to make landfall on the 3rd January in southern Thailand before continuing onwards to Myanmar, where it's likely to impact the country on January 4th.
Many towns and neighboring archepelagos in southern Myanmar will be impacted, with a high risk of heavy rainfall and coastal flooding. The storm has already produced torrential rains and flooding in Vietnam and Cambodia. Meterologists are continually monitoring the storm system as there are concerns it could gather strength in the Gulf and evolve into a cyclone as it heads towards Thailand and Myanmar.
Local transport services will be impacted by the storm.
