Sonca dumps garbage, jellyfish on Jomtien

1254-n14-storm.jpg

PATTAYA:--Jomtien Beach took a licking, but came back ticking following Tropical Storm Sonca, which washed ashore a tsunami of garbage and muck, but tourists returned a few days later.

 

Numerous beachchair vendors simply decided to close shop after Sonca littered Jomtien Beach with garbage and filth July 31, as the murky water and littered beaches scared away their customers.

 

The garbage was thick and the tourists thin following the storm, which still had enough muscle left after thrashing Vietnam and Northern Thailand to churn up the Gulf of Thailand.

 

Vendor Kanyan Mabcharoen, 60, said she decided to take an unscheduled vacation until the city can clean up the beach and the water returns to more normal visibility.

 

But swimmers were back by Aug. 2, saying the water was much clearer.

 

The murky water was a result of both sewers backing up and overflowing into the ocean and tides churning up the ocean bottom.

Between the sewage and human dumped muck on the sea bed, Sonca is not to blame, she didn't "dump" anything but rain.

If only the garbage was not in the water there would be nothing to worry

about or clean up. :whistling:

Yep! I guess it´s just to dive in and get a mouthful of this so much clearer water then. Anyone care to join? Not! I guessed so. :smile:

Glad hat the beach in the picture had the garbage cleaned up, and to see two European sun tanning

women on the beach at all is better than seeing the big fat older people I got to see there last

Winter.
