30 March 2011 - Food supply in Samui
Just got back from Big C.
We didn't even attempt to go to Tesco - saw the pictures with empty shelves, so was hoping Big C has more. We were wrong, very wrong.
Anyway, managed to get some carrots ( apparently carrots proved to be not really popular product here - no one keeps the rabbits here :-( and also we got some take-away food from the food court - they still have food - amazing! Tesco's food court run out of food yesterday quite early.
Big C looks like IT centre right now - tons of people who don't have electricity in their houses, trying to charge their phones and laptops and use Internet.
30 March 2011
We were expecting much better weather today but it doesn't look like it's going to happen, it's raining non-stop again, not as much as yesterday, but still a lot.
Floods on the roads have gone down a bit, but roads have big damage - collapsed brigde in nathon, landslides around Nathon and between Chaweng and Lamai, many areas have no electricity for nearly 3 days, especially Bangrak and Choengmon are affected.
Bangkok Airways had 6 planes taken off in Bangkok but only 1 has landed in Samui, also I have heard that Firefly flight from Malaysia has landed this morning in Samui as well. I find the most updates about Bangkok Airways on their Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/FlyBangkokAir
Access to the airport is also badly affected - many roads nearby still have floods.
In Krabi there was a very serious disaster with thousands people buried under landslide -
A few pictures of today from Raymond Day and Natchaya Mornpia:
