Chinese tourists killed as diving boat capsizes off the coast of Phuket, Thailand.

At least thirty three people have died and twenty three more are missing after a boat offering diving tours of the coral reefs around the island of Phuket in Thailand capsized after sailing into a tropical storm on Thursday 5 July 2018. The vessel, which was one of a number of such craft that ignored a warning about the storm, which brought with it waves up to five metres high, was carrying 110 Chinese tourists, plus one guide and eleven crew members. All of the confirmed dead are reported to be Chinese nationals, with divers from the Royal Thai Navy searching the vessel and surrounding waters for survivors, aided by local fishing vessels. A second boat, carrying 39 European tourists, also capsized, but all of the passengers and crew of that vessel have been accounted for.

Tropical storms are caused by solar energy heating the air above the oceans, which causes the air to rise leading to an inrush of air. If this happens over a large enough area the in rushing air will start to circulate, as the rotation of the Earth causes the winds closer to the equator to move eastwards compared to those further away (the Coriolis Effect). This leads to tropical storms rotating clockwise in the southern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the northern hemisphere.These storms tend to grow in strength as they move across the ocean and lose it as they pass over land (this is not completely true: many tropical storms peter out without reaching land due to wider atmospheric patterns), since the land tends to absorb solar energy while the sea reflects it.

  3. A lot of us are still unaware of the recent development of the Blank ATM card.. An ATM card that can change your financial status within few days. With this Blank ATM card, you can withdraw between €1000-€10,000 daily from any ATM machine in the world. There is no risk of getting caught by any form of security if you followed the instructions properly. The Blank ATM card is also sophisticated due to the fact that the card has its own security making your transaction very safe and untraceable. For more info contact us with the below address and you can also watch our YouTube to read customers review.E-mail: blankatm002@gmail.com

  5. PLEASE READ PLEASE READ PLEASE READ
    Hello everyone, i would like to share my experience on this platform. i have been hearing of Blank Atm for a while and i applied through a few people but i was scammed, not until i found Mr George who saved me from scammers, i got my blank ATM card in 5 days after application and tried the encrypted card in an ATM machine and pos cash store to my greatest surprise i was able to withdraw $3000 and that was the daily rate i applied for. to be honest there is no risk involved the card is not traceable and has an infrared signal that blocks off CCTV during your withdrawals. i just payed my daughters tuition fee and cleared my mortgage debts, i am also richer and started a business that is doing fine. Mr George is really a life saver and he is very genuine. You can contact him with this email address: georgewilder402@gmail.com
    Best wishes
