Video: Now Phuket!  Black water comes through the sands at Patong!

A video posted on Facebook showed filthy black water start gurgling up through the sands at Kalim Beach in Patong, Phuket. 

 

Within no time the water was a raging torrent heading for the sea that was washing away a large section of the beach as startled tourists looked on. 

 

It was coming from a pipe that was previously not visible due to the sand. 

 

Posters reacted with horror at the latest pollution on Thai beaches - last week the sea at Na Jomtien in Pattaya was turned into a "Black Lagoon". 

 

Officials there put sandbags next to a drain as a stopgap measure. 

 

The latest video was posted by Bong Marquez who said in comments that officials had come to take water samples last night. 

 

The video was widely shared and commented upon.

Will tourists again be responsible for all this?
Thailand, wake up, do you want to be one of the best destinations in the world? MAKE YOU DO! You cannot continue to accept that the crops are discharged into the sea.

Sandbags seem to be the only measure they know?
