Last night, July 3rd, the Phuket Governor inspected the Thep Kasattri Road (No 402) north bound near the Sai Kaew Beach in Mai Khao after the high tide and strong waves washed up seawater onto the road yesterday (July 3rd).
The Phuket Governor Narong Wonnciew told the Phuket Express, “Yesterday there were many roads near beaches in Phuket that have been affected by high tides and strong waves.”
“A Southwest Monsoon has currently covered the Andaman Sea. Waves are up to three meters high in Phuket, Phang Nga, and Ranong. This phenomenon happens every year during the monsoon season.” Governor Narong explained.
“However this year a significant amount of seawater has been washed up on land. It is expected that today (July 4th) at about noon, the high tide will hit again.” The governor concluded.
