Gets a glimpse of the Pabuk storm

The news shows and reports on the unusual tropical storm "Pabuk" that hit southern Thailand. The meteorological department said the storm had maximum sustained winds of 47mph when it made land shortly after noon, but Malaysia is lucky and Pabuk will only touch the island of Penang which I have nothing against.
