Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 19th October, 2011

Today's weather;

The sky over Koh Samui is more clouded today compared to previous days. There are just a few blue patches to be seen. Current temp at 7am is 26C

The forecast for the next 7 days on Koh Samui remains unchanged though and is very good with hardly any rain predicted at all.

Yesterday saw another warm and dry day around the island with plenty of sunshine. Max temp reached 31.7C

In Bangkok the situation changed drastically overnight, Nava Nakorn, one of the Kingdom's largest industrial estates just north of Bangkok in Pathum Thani, with 227 factories faced closure and 170,000 workers were at the risk of losing their jobs. Channel 4 reporters went to check the area out and found this. The government is playing some strange games and strategies, and keeps wrestling with telling the truth or lies. One can only hope that this will have a severe backlash when the pieces will be picked up after the flood since thousands may be left jobless.

The Bangkok Post has another very well written article about all the government indecision.

Experts agree the current flood disaster could have been mitigated by readily available modern technology. Technology veterans say the lack of a data collection system and inadequate weather forecasting are the main factors behind this historic crisis.

A fellow blogger, Paul Garrigan, who lives in Minburi, Bangkok tells about his flood experiences on his blog.

I can only hope that everything will go down well but right now, unfortunately it doesn't look like it at all right now and one keeps wondering about the strange actions taken by the Thai government that puts many lives and goods at danger by apparently not being clear.
