PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette Online recorded 149,949 visitors during the 24 hours ended at midnight (local time), December 27. Site outages of one to two minutes occurred eight times, for which the Gazette apologizes.
A large volume of requests for assistance with regard to missing persons is also being received. In order to “widen the net” and increase the likelihood of readers getting into contact with someone who might know the whereabouts of a missing person, the Gazette Online has set up a special English-language facility.
Readers concerned about the fate of someone known to have been in southern Thailand on the day of the catastrophe are welcome to post a message, and, if possible, a photograph of the person who may have been endangered. They can do this at https://thethaiger.com/classifieds/placead.asp?categoryid=54
All missing-persons messages will be published widely and without charge. They will be indexed to the Gazette Online home page and be copied by email to as many local area (Phuket, Phang-nga and Krabi) hospitals as possible.
Meanwhile, a list of emergency embassy and consular representatives currently in Phuket, along with their phone numbers, can be found at https://thethaiger.com/news/index.asp?id=3877
