Updated Information on High Tide in Thailand

( Updated Information on High Tide in Thailand

Thailand National Tourism Organization has consulted with Dr. Smith Dharmasaroja, Chairman of the Committee for the National Disaster Warning Administration, and was informed that the high waves in Andaman Sea which affected the west coast of Thailand in Phuket, Phang-nga and Ranong on 14 May 2007 was affected by storm surge from cyclone in Andaman Sea close to the coast of Myanmar and strong southwest monsoon over Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

Moreover on 15 May 2007 the waves were higher than usual and the level of tide was highest causing floods in some areas in the capital, Bangkok. The water level near the mouth of the Chao Phraya River was high so the rain water could not drain to the Gulf of Thailand in time. It was a rare natural phenomenon and not related to tsunami. The only damage was on Sai Kaew Beach in the north of Phuket where some local restaurants were destroyed. Neither injury nor death of local people or tourists was recorded.

All tourism destinations in the Andaman were safe and caused no panic for people in the area. We will appreciate all concerned to be updated with this information.
