Thai Hi-speed Ferry Sunk in Storm-Wrecked Phi Phi Harbour
Heavy seas at Phi Phi Island have sunk a large passenger ferry, beached a cargo boat and heavily damaged at least six speedboats and 20 longtail boats, inform the Phuket Gazette citing Thailand Marine Police officials.
The Andaman Jet Wave ferry, moored overnight with no persons on board is registered to carry 250 passengers, but had yet to begin its daily operations of carrying tourists to and from Krabi and Phi Phi when it fell victim to the storm.
Strong waves also beached a large cargo ferry, which sustained heavy damage by the pounding of the surf.
