Bamboo Island in Krabi floods with rising sea level

The sea level has risen up to 30 centimetres and caused flooding at Bamboo Island (Koh Mai Pai) in Krabi yesterday (June 18). Red flags have been put along the beach.

Officers of Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, stationed at Koh Mai Pai, have set red flags along the beach to prevent swimmers going into the water to avoid strong surf and the detritus of rubbish in the water that has washed in during the storms.

“The sea level has risen up to 30 centimetres. We can’t allow beachgoers or swimmers on the beach at this time.

Meanwhile, strong winds have hit many areas in Krabi. Trees have been torn down and some have fallen on houses.

78 year old Soon Tararak says, “While I was cooking in the kitchen, a palm tree fell down and hit the roof just above my head. Luckily I escaped without any injuries.”
