Hello, Phuket Express Readers and Supporters!
The following is our weekly feature in which we highlight the top local stories in our area Phuket, from the past week. The number of stories differs from week to week.
These are chosen and curated by our editorial team and are designed for our readers to get a quick “catch-up” of important stories they may have missed. We publish many stories daily and it is easy to lose track of important events or changes in our area. We do national recaps in a separate article, this is only the top local stories in Phuket province.
They are in no particular order of importance but roughly in order of publishing. These are from Monday, July 4th, 2022, to Sunday, July 10th, 2022.
Let’s get started and see what the top local stories were!
- Strong waves washed up seawater onto a beach road north of Phuket causing traffic delays on July 3rd. Food stalls and vendors near the beach were mostly evacuated before the storm and waves but some have been damaged.
The Phuket Governor Narong Wonnciew told the Phuket Express, “There were many roads near beaches in Phuket that have been affected by high tides and strong waves.”
The Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew on July 6th has ordered relevant officials especially the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) Phuket Office to closely keep an eye on the recent oceanic earthquake situation. Any important updates should be communicated to Phuket residents immediately.
The Phuket Fisheries Office Chief Mr. Sittiphon Mueangsong told the Phuket Express, “Some tourists might think the place is abandoned but it is not and has passed all recent inspections and meets all regulations. The reptiles are happy and healthy and well cared for.”
The event will be held on the traditional road in front of the Kathu Municipality from July 15th to July 17th, 2022 from 5:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M..
That is all for this week, as always thanks for your support!
