PHANG NGA, 18th June 2018, (NNT) – Officials have erected red flags along the southern shoreline to warn tourists of dangerous areas in the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, as harsh winds and strong waves dominate the region.

Pounding waves have reportedly uprooted pine trees near beaches in Khuekkhak sub-district in Takua Pa district of Phang Nga province. The trees were planted to absorb the impact of strong waves. Hotel operators have instructed employees to erect barriers, while officials have marked all dangerous zones as a safety measure.
