According with the weather forecast, Tiphoon Pabuk should hit the Thai Gulf today (4th January) or Saturday morning with heavy rain and strong winds, especially around the coast and the Southern islands. Phuket and nearby islands seem to be the regions at most risk so far, but the situation may change depending on the direction of the wind.
To the Portuguese in those areas of Thailand, we advise utmost care to avoid risk situations.
Remember that, whatever the situation may be, everyone should follow the instructions given by the Thai authorities. The Embassy of Portugal in Bangkok is monitoring this situation in cooperation with the Thai authorities and EU embassies in Thailand and, if necessary, will take the apropriate measures along with those entities.
