Tidal Wave in Southern Thailand 5-Jan-2005 At 9:14:36 AM jens
I tend to agree (not that I know much), but Reiley is a small area and the cleanup is quick. It would be bad in areas that have a large polulation, but not around Krabi except for Krabi town itself, as it would be the hub for rescue services.

I would go! Doesn't sound like it is any more dangerous (health wise) than going to Nepal. I would take some water purifying tabs though.

Got another email dated 30/12/04 from Elke and Wee. Thought you might like an update from the place.

>A quick update on the situation here in Ton Sai and Railey:

>The Wave killed about 5 to 10 people on Railey West, Pra Nang and Ao Nang beach, >people who were on kayaks or just getting into boats and there are boatmen missing. >However, compared to Ko Phi Phi, Phuket and Ko Lak we were all incredible lucky. No >climber has been seriously hurt or killed that we know of. Railey West beach was damaged >the worst. Ton Sai beach lost the bamboo huts on the beachfront (i.e. Sawadee Bar and >Tina restaurant) but no bungalows were destroyed.
>Today the beaches look quite normal again, there has been a giant clean-up effort. Boats >are running again, the news that there is no food or drinking water on Railey or Ton Sai is >WRONG. Restaurants are open. All bungalow places still have guests. Actually, Ton Sai is >pretty much back to normal as many climbers stayed and continued their vacation.
>If you or someone you know is considering a climbing vacation: please come!!! You will >experience no problems and this place needs your business now more than ever. Thanks >to all for the e-mails and good wishes! Elke & Wee

Take care people, and safe travels!!
