Bangkok: Tropical Storm ‘Pabuk’ has taken the lives of three people in Thailand until now, ever since it made landfall in the Pak Panang district on January 4.
Furthermore, authorities on Saturday downgraded the storm to a depression which has now left Thailand and is currently in the Andaman sea.
Two elderly people lost their lives after drowning in Thailand’s Nakhon Si Thammarat while the third person was killed after his fishing boat capsized in Pattani, reports CNN.
The country has resumed flights and ferry services, which had been suspended due to the storm.
Warnings of torrential rain and flash floods are still live in nine provinces in Thailand, despite Pabuk’s downgraded status. More than 28,000 people have been shifted to shelters in seven provinces in the last two days in anticipation of the storm.
