Has the horrible weather that was forecast hit phuket yet?

Hi,

Just wondering if the big winds and heavy, heavy rain have hit phuket yet.

If it has, I hope everyone there are safe. The reports made it sound like it was going to be bad.

Thanks

We have had periods of heavy rain and wind on and off since Tuesday evening. Doesn't look like there will be any change soon, but there are still periods where the rain is very light or stops altogether. We are staying at the Katathani and haven't seen much flooding or damage at all.

Wet wet wet. But still warm and plenty of shopping eating and drinking to do.

No big winds, some gusts though but nothing exceptional, but wet, wet, wet.

The main street outside jungcelyon was flooded this morning but when we finished shopping it was all gone. I'm hoping it clears up again like last night but it's not ruining my holiday. Just more shopping vs relaxing by the pool :)

Thanks TAers. Do u think it has set in for days on end? Other posts say to ignore the weather reports as it always says rain in monsoon season, so just looking for TAers opinions.

It's pouring in Sydney whereI live at the moment too...lol Have I broken a mirror recently or what...lol

Purchased a rain cover for the bubs stroller yesterday, and have umbrellas for the girls, so am prepared for the wet ( nothing will hold me back from our plans, especially shopping), but will be nice if we get some dry weather.

Come on Phuket clouds, go away:)

I'm sure it won't last long and at least it's warm.
