In the past few days, Thailand has experienced severe weather conditions, which have caused damage in various parts of the country. From 12-14 March, heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, and strong winds have affected northern, northeast, and central regions of Thailand, including the Bangkok area. As a result of this, almost 1,900 people have been affected, along with 626 houses across several provinces, namely Kamphaeng Phet, Sukhotai, Phitsanulok, Phrae, Phayao, and Nan.

According to the ASEAN Disaster Information Network (ADINet), the affected areas experienced heavy rainfall, resulting in flooding, landslides, and strong winds causing damage to infrastructure, homes, and properties. The Thai government and local authorities have been working to provide assistance to those affected, including emergency relief supplies, food, and shelter.

While the immediate impact of the weather conditions has caused damage, there is some relief in the forecast for the next 24 hours. According to the Thai Meteorological Department, light rain with isolated thunderstorms is forecast over parts of northern and central Thailand. However, the authorities continue to monitor the situation closely, as further rainfall and severe weather conditions are still a possibility.

As the country continues to deal with the aftermath of this severe weather, it serves as a reminder of the importance of emergency preparedness and response. The Thai government and local authorities are taking steps to ensure that those affected receive the necessary assistance and support, and the country is expected to recover from this natural disaster in due course.
