PHUKET: Heavy rains are expected in all regions along the Andaman coast until tomorrow afternoon, an officer at the Thai Meteorological Department told the Phuket Gazette this morning.

Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, Trang and Satun will all be affected.

Tourists should avoid swimming in the sea for the next two days, as the surf is likely to be particularly dangerous, the officer said.
