Thousands stranded on Thai islands as Tropical Storm Pabuk hits

Krabi, Thailand (CNN)Thousands of people were left stranded on Thailand’s southern gulf coast as Tropical Storm Pabuk made landfall on Friday.

Authorities had moved to suspend all flights and ferry services ahead of the storm, which officially made landfall in the Pak Panang district of Nakhon Si Thammarat province around 3:30 p.m. local time (3:35 a.m. ET), with maximum, sustained wind speeds of 95 kilometers per hour (59 mph), according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
Some of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, including Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao islands, along with islands in the Andaman Sea such as Phuket and Koh Phi Phi — made famous by the movie “The Beach” — are expected to be affected by the storm during what is peak holiday season.
“It’s quite scary being here because we don’t know what’s going to happen and there is no way to leave,” American tourist Miranda Abidyer, 26, who is stranded on Koh Samui island, told CNN.
Abidyer, who travelled to the island with her young family to celebrate her husband’s 30th birthday, said they had a flight scheduled for Friday but it was cancelled and ferry services have also been suspended. She said they hadn’t received any information from local authorities about the storm or what they should do. They now plan to wait it out in their private villa, which is about 1 kilometre (0.6 miles) from the beach.
“We will hide in the bathroom if the storm gets that bad. But all we can do is wait,” said Abidyer.
