Photos of the erosion, along the stretch of Nai Yang Beach directly behind Phuket International Airport, were posted on the Facebook page of the Phuket Lifeguare Service yesterday (Sept 8).

Prathaiyut Chuayuan, President of Phuket Lifeguard Service (PLGS) told The Phuket News today (Sept 9), “The recent weather has seriously affected Nai Yang Beach. Over the last week there have been big, strong waves. The tide has been very high and people have not been able to get onto the beach.

The waves have caused erosion along the beach, and in some places it is so bad that trees have fallen. No official from the area has been to inspect it yet,” Mr Prathaiyut said.

When contacted by The Phuket News today, Panu Kittikiet, an official from the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, Mai Khao Municipality said, “We don’t have any report about erosion along Nai Yang Beach. We will go to check it today.”

Meanwhile, Director of Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM), Chatchai Pormlert announced in the national press that heavy rain in the Andaman region over the past few days has resulted in wet soil and that some areas may experience flash floods and landslides. “This is especially the case in Ranong, Phang Nga, Krabi and Phuket.” he said.

ematt: Indeed many affairs on Phuket are not handled well, while sometimes it is so easy to do, but due to thai passiveness, etc.
Unable to think out of the box, not being preventive active due to, in this case, lack of education regarding coastal protection.
World wide we experience a climate change, storms are stronger, sea level is rising.

Kurt..like swerve said, it is not their duty to look and report. What do you want them to do? go out with buckets and spades, wade out and bring the sand back in?

You really need to acquaint yourself with coastal morphodynamics before you make your unintelligible comments. Artificial measures to keep erosion under control only accelerates it because longshore drift starves the beaches of sand, ...

How on earth was the Thai government able to manage it's affairs before Kurt arrived? Thank goodness they now have him to tell them what to do! About everything, no less...

Kurt: The damage/photos were seen on the phuket lifeguard facebook. The lifeguard should have reported it to the municipality but didn't. The journalist noted the report then went to look for him/her self. Please read before commenting.
I am not talking about patroling 11kms of beach because what you fail to understand is that mai kao is a huge area and not just beach.

Kurt | 10 September 2016 - 16:06:18

swerv: It doesn't need a 11 km patrol, right?
The newspaper had a look and made photos.
What on earth can be the administrative duties so important that not even one person of municipality could have a look during this whole last week like the journalist?

Why are you proactive defending thai municipality passiveness? 
I already commented that no one is responsible, right?

So, as you s...

Kurt: If the staff at mai Kao municipality are sitting on their hands ( i assume you have seen them doing that)in the office then i think it is fair to assume that they are doing administrative duties. In other words it is not their duty to look and report. The damage done is very recent and easy to miss.
Do you actually know how many kms of beach this municipality has to "patrol"? Mai ...

I have yet to see the \"Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation\" actually mitigate anything.

mitigation
mɪtɪˈɡeɪʃ(ə)n/
noun
the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something.

It is well known for years that Nai Yang Beach shore needs a artificial reef out there to break the strong swell and waves during stormy periods.
Nothing done so far, and you see the results on the photos.
A pity and a shame.
And,..of course, very thai, no body is responsible.

The Phuket News

Kurt | 09 September 2016 - 20:48:11

The recent weather of this week has effected all west coast beaches, in one way or another.
The fact that Mai Khao municipality all the time had no knowledge what was going on at Nai Yangbeach is saying a lot about Mai Khao municipality.
It shows a municipality without any affinity with Phuket beaches. A bunch of people just sitting in a office on their hands.
And always that lame excuse: "...
