Advice For Travellers

Southbound trains have been halted in the town of Thung Song in Nakhon Si Thammarat province. The services affected by the floods include all express and rapid trains from Bangkok to Trang, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Hat Yai, Yala and Sungai Kolok in Narathiwat, as well as all local services from Thung Song. Since trains on the southern line cannot go beyond Thung Song station, buses are being provided to take passengers to destinations.

In many areas, roads and bridges are damaged. There are power outages in some areas. Although waters are receding, Thailand's Meteorological Department has forecasted more heavy rains next week for southern Thailand.
