Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has expressed concern over possible flooding around the country, said Government Spokesman Lt-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd on Saturday.



Sansern quoted Prayut as expressing concern that many parts of the country could be hit by floods under the influence of Bebinca tropical storm, which is expected to unleash heavy rains on much of Thailand.

The PM advises people to closely monitor weather forecasts and warnings from the Meteorological Department.

The spokesman said Prayut is especially concerned about tourists visiting waterfalls and wants them to be aware of possible runs-off.

The prime minister had also instructed park officials to monitor and warn tourists of the dangers posed by mountain runoffs at waterfalls and of high waves at the seaside.
