Tropical Storm Ketsana caused a lot of damage in the Philippines over the weekend, and then turned into a typhoon before hitting Vietnam on Tuesday. It was predicted that Laos and part of Thailand would get lots of rain and wind from the storm after it passed over Vietnam, but so far I’ve only noticed cloudy skies and a bit of wind. I think we’re too far north to see much more than that. I wonder if there will be flooding in Vientiane.
