Narathiwat and Pattani were bracing early today for a possible tsunami resulting from yesterday’s huge earthquake off Japan, and Songkhla remains at risk, a Meteorological Department official said.

The department’s provincial chief in Narathiwat, Manee Uttharak, said waves could reach the coast of Narathiwat by about 4.56am, reaching a height of 4 metres a kilometre off the coast. Provincial authorities ordered rescue workers to stand by and prepare for a possible evacuation of a 50km stretch of the province facing the Gulf of Thailand.
