PHUKET:-- The tsunami-warning buoy left adrift after presumably being struck by a boat has been recovered and is now in Phuket under inspection to determine which parts need repair.


The buoy, designated ‘Station 23461’ in the multinational tsunami-warning array west of Phuket, was confirmed last week as missing from its anchored location in the Andaman Sea some 280km northwest of Phuket.


Dr Prasong Thammapala, Acting Director of the Information Technology and Communication Center at the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM), explained to The Phuket News that the buoy was likely set adrift after being struck by a passing boat or ship.
