Koh Chang tragedy - mudslide

Jump to last reply

This grossly overdeveloped and unregulated island has experienced a predictable tragedy - a mudslide resulting in the death of an immigrant worker.

Bangkok Post and Nation both carried the story.

here's the Bkk post......."Landslip blamed on Hotel work"

"Koh Chang officials said the island would suffer a blackout for a few more days after heavy downpours and landslides knocked down electricity poles.

Officials have been racing against time to repair about 20 high-voltage power poles since heavy rains hit the holiday island from Sunday night to early Monday.

Flood relief officials and rescue volunteers have worked around the clock to clear the mud. Only one lane of the coast road was passable yesterday."
