26th December, 2009

Today's weather;

Another sunny sky reigns over Samui on the 5th memorial day for the 2004 Indian ocean earthquake that resulted in the deadly Tsunami. Current temp at 7am is 26.2C.

A picture taken in Kao Lak two and a half months after the Tsunami which still gives a good indication of the post tsunami devastation. A few more pictures from the same series can be seen on last years memorial day on my blog.

Below is a video of the first wave crashing in on Kao Lak, the devastating power is almost unbelievable, the second video is from Koh Lanta and the third video is a video taken on Kh Phi Phi. The latter two are less viewed but show the moment of the waves crashing in and all associated panica dn mayhem.

Yesterday saw plenty of sunshine although it was hazier throughout the day than it looked like in the morning. Max temp reached 30.2C.
