PHUKET: Phuket Marine Office Acting Director Wiwat Chitchertwong has confirmed that the ban on boats from leaving shore for safety reasons due to the weather fallout from tropical storm Pabuk will be lifted, effective midnight tonight.
 

The decision to not extend ban, initially set in force from Wednesday through today (Jan 3-5), was made at a meeting at the “disaster command centre” set up at Phuket Provincial Hall this afternoon. Presiding over the meeting was Phuket Vice Governor Supoj Rotreuang Na Nongkhai.

 

The decision also follows Pabyuk being downgraded to a “tropical depression” and passing over the southwest coast to over the Andaman Sea earlier today (Jan 5).
