Chiang Rai: Weather reclaims the Tham Luang cave area

One day out and the weather has reclaimed the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand. The Nang Non mountains have been shrouded in thick cloud and mist today after heavy rain started again last night.

The media is still stationed in a muddy area at the Phongpha Sub-district Administration Offices in Mae Sai district. Although the soccer team and the doctor and Seals who stayed with them are safe, the equipment still has to be removed and the cave returned to normal.

Reporters have been told that just an hour after the last person left the cave on Tuesday night the waters rose very quickly by a metre drowning some of the equipment, and right now rescuers are not able to go in and bring them out.

The timing, it seems, was perfect.
