In Krabi, storms hit several areas, damaging scores of houses and crops in the provincial seat.

One death was reported as a motorcycle crashed into a felled tree on a road.

A thousand small fishing boats in Satun have stayed ashore for a week due to strong winds and 2-3 metre waves in the Gulf of Thailand. Some seaside houses were damaged by smashing waves.

In Chumphon, Phinit Charoenpanit, governor reported the flood situation has extended to five districts and warned fishermen to beware of rough sea until the end of this week as rainfall continues.
