HUA HIN: -- Environmentalists said that the sea levels in Hua Hin were at their lowest levels for 18 years yesterday - but it was nothing to worry about.

 

Rocks that are normally covered by the sea emerged in full view and many boats couldn't get out to sea as they were stranded.

 

The Pattaya ferry departure was delayed until the late afternoon by the phenomenon.

 

Scientist Bamrungsak Chatananthawet said that it was a natural occurrence and there was no danger to coral or marine life.

 

Rocks were visible on a large area from Hua Hin to Bang Saphan Noi.

 

Hua Hin literally means "head rock" in Thai.
