PHUKET: The International Surf Lifesaving Association (ISLA) has issued a surf danger warning as Southern Thailand braces for storm conditions following a weather warning reissued again for Phuket and the Andaman coast.

 

The ISLA warning, published on the organisation's Facebook page at 9am today (Aug 10), includes a High Surf Warning, a Severe Rip Current Warning, a Flash Rip Current Warning and Squall Warning from Satun and Tarutao Island north to the Sarasin Bridge (Phuket / Phang Nga) including all West and Southwest facing beaches and bars in-between.

 

“Surf heights of one to two metres, with possible larger wave sets, are predicted for the next five days at the listed beaches and locations. Swimmers, surfers, beachgoers, and anglers are advised to use caution near the shoreline,” the warning noted.
