The government has set aside 50 million baht in emergency funding for every province which is hit by typhoon Ketsana, which is now heading towards Thailand, Interior Minister Chavarat Charnvirakul said on Tuesday.

The death toll from Ketsana in the Philippines has soared to at least 240 people, and more than 170,000 people in Vietnam have been evacuated as the typhoon approaches its coastline.

Emergency agencies had prepared preventive and supportive measures for people in the North and Northeast, as the typhoon could hit both regions, Mr Chavarat said.
