Speaking of the approaching Tropical Storm Nalgae, Deputy Director-General of the Meteorological Department Dr Somsri Huntrakul stated that the storm system was in the South China Sea at the moment and was moving northwest towards Northern Vietnam. It is expected to make a landfall in the country on 5 October.

As a consequence, torrential rains will be seen during 6-9 October in the lower part of the northeastern region of Thailand, particularly in Ubon Ratchathani, Amnat Charoen, Surin, Buri Ram and Roi Et. Other provinces to be partially affected include Ranong, Phang Nga, Chanthaburi and Trat.

Furthermore, a monsoon trough passing through the mid-section of the country in combination with the southwest monsoon in the Andaman Sea, the southern region and the Gulf of Thailand will result in more rains over the next 2-3 days in the Lower North, the Lower Northeast, the Central Plains, the East and the East Coast of the South.

Abuse against women still prevalent in Thailand

Like many other Asian countries, Thailand is a patriarchal society in which women are generally tied to the role of family caretaker which usually means raising children and taking care of the elderly, as well as other household chores like cooking and cleaning.
