This is the latest satellite image released by GISTDA of the oil spill in Rayong province. The last image that we had (see below) which was taken on Monday night, it looked like the oil was heading for the mainland in Rayong. Indeed, some newspaper reports on Tuesday said that the oil had already reached some beaches. But, no-one provided any photographic evidence. Looking at this satellite image taken this morning, it would seem that the oil spill has moved away from the mainland and has started to disperse to an extent. However, what is worrying now is that it seems to have reached a group of islands dominated by Koh Kudee. These are a popular daytrip for tourists on Koh Samet to go snorkeling to see the staghorn and giant clam coral reef . Nothing in the news about this yet. It’s also strange that no satellite image for Tuesday was released. For all the latest updates on the oil spill, please follow me on Twitter @RichardBarrow.
