Donations of items including drinking water, rice as well as dried, packaged and canned food supplies, items of clothing and any useful household items are welcome at the “Pabuk Storm Victims Center Phuket Rajabhat University” from now until Jan 8.

The emergency relief centre has been set up at the 1st floor of the Student Activity Center at Phuket Rajabhat University. (See map below.)

Cash donations are also being accepted through a relief fund set up especially to receive donations from the public.

A mission to deliver the first supplies reached the disaster struck Tambon Bang Chak in Nakhon Sri Thammarat’s Muang District today. (See full gallery here.)

More donations to provide assistance to those whose homes, farms and businesses were devastated by the flash floods are welcome.

Destructive winds and severe floods saw over 34,000 villagers evacuated as tropical storm Pabuk lay waste to the region and plunged people into days of despair.

Blackouts affected nearly 60,000 residents in Muang and Pak Phanang Districts alone.

The Centre for Economic and Business Forecasting, the research arm of the University of Thai Chamber of Commerce, estimates the economic damage in the whole southern region at B3-5 billion. (See story here.)

...Submarines, mine detectors, tanks, flying things that not fly, etc, etc.  Well, we know that a Army is always a 'sub culture' in a culture. As long they respect the constitution and serve the country accordingly their oat ( without their own explanation about it) things go well. But when a army 'breaks out' and get the upper hand, things go over the years spiral wise wrong.

Yes, and start building real houses, not these 'sheds for living', destroyed by wind force BF-8 already. Photo's of destroyed 'houses' tell it all. Lift housing standards for the poor to level 4.0.  Good idea?
Houses of the rich in effected areas hardly have damage.

A good cause, to be sure. 
But, maybe less money should be spent buying submarines and spent, instead, on the people.
