Pictures of the Tsunami / sea surge hitting Railay
We have done a separate page of the pictures of Ao Nang and Railay
a couple of days after the tsunami here
Pictures of the Tsunami/ sea surge from Bjørnar
Somebody kindly posted these on our forum. If you have
any more, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for this. The
full article written by his climbing partner can be found here.
Bjørnar must of been 2 or three pitches up on Thaiwand Wall.
Would have been a strange sight.
I'm guessing these aftermath pictures must have been taken from
the climbers after they got down from the cliff. The first looks
like Railay Bay, with the addition of a longtail boat in the bar.
The second looks like the bit where they put the fish out the front
of Railay Bay restaurant (hard to tell though)
This picture by Samuel Nicols came off the 8a.nu
site. There is also a great
first hand account by the photographer.
Got this amazing sequence of Railay Beach from a Norwegian
news paper. This paper has an amazing amount of stories about
Railay. Must have been someone working for the paper staying in
Railay. Only trouble is that it is all in Norwegian....
Tomas kindly wrote us that all of the people are safe and back
in Sweden. It is two families with
their children. There is an article about it here.
These two pictures are from Anja Dekkers and Marco Broeders. They
were actually at sea waiting for the Phi Phi express boat, and somehow
managed to get to safety when they saw it coming. The first picture
is longtail carnage outside Railay Village Resort, and the second
is taken up at diamond cave, where everyone spent the night after
rumors of another imminent "100m" wave...
Here are some more pics from another Norwegian
Long tail Carnage at Tonsai Beach
Ton Sai Beach looking like a mess. The Freedom bar is still standing,
Climbers help a boatman get his engine back in the boat.
The following pictures were shamelessly stolen from fantasy-divers.de
Picture of the spray from the wave hitting the Ao Nang sea wall.
The Longtails were never designed for waves. This is around the
corner from Ao Nang, which became more of a longtail grave yard
Ao Nang Beach right after the wave hit. Messy but not too bad.
Ao Nang beach road right after the Wave hit. Messy but no real damage.
Another picture of Ao Nang beach right after the wave.
