For those of in Asia....Typhoon Mangkhut just went through Guam and heading towards the Philippines. China & Hong Kong appear to be on the path....and many sources are saying this is much-worse then Hurricane Florence, another big nasty one over on the other ocean.

Who knows what will happen...

NE Thailand could get some rain from the fringes of the storm if it deviates from its path. As it currently is, the path appears to be heading across the Philippines, Taiwan, and on into China. Hong Kong could get badly hammered from flooding and high winds. Weather forecasters at Rangsit were predicting that if it hits southern China, Thailand can expect to be impacted from it. Flooding is possible, but not as severe as the storm in 2011. Apparently, there are two storms, the milder Barijat, with the Super Typhoon Mangkhut following. I would assume if it remains on its current path, Thailand may get clouds and some rain from it. Time will tell.

A friend of mine in Buriram said his rice fields have been nearly bone dry, so a good rainfall would be more than welcome.

The worst hit province is the mountainous province of Benguet! To add insult to injury, a lot of people in those mining towns are jobless now due to the resulting mining ban and are now scrambling to find new livelihoods.
