Thailand braces for tropical storm Pabuk

January 4, 2019 -- The Kingdom of Thailand has cancelled flights and evacuated offshore oil rigs as tropical storm Pabuk threatens to batter the south of the country.

Rain, winds and surging seawaters struck southern Thailand as strengthening tropical storm Pabuk – the first of its type to strike the Kingdom in nearly 30 years – hammered towards coastal villages and tourist resorts.

The storm made landfall in the Nakhon Si Thammarat province at 0545 GMT, Friday, January 4, as officials drove trucks fitted with loudspeakers through flooded streets, urging residents to evacuate.

Pabuk is forecast to travel across southern Thailand towards Surat Thani, home to the popular tourist islands of Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, before crossing over to the Andaman Sea and up towards the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
