PHUKET: The US government shutdown due Congressional appropriations has left the tsunami-warning buoy deployed off Phuket today useless as the buoy remains to be manually activated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

 

Dr Prasong Thammapala, Scientist Senior Professional Level at the National Disaster Warning Centre (NDWC) in Bangkok, explained the situation to The Phuket News this morning (Jan 18).

Better excuse then "the batteries have gone flat".

---The batteries were stolen

---The money for the batteries went "missing"

---The batteries were defunct through lack of maintenance.

 

After all TIT.

They never run out of the weirdest ideas to blame farangs for the mess created by their own incompetence. Sometimes I think way too many people here were born with a brain failure syndrome.
