PHUKET
Approximately two hours following the earthquake just off the northwest coast of Sumatra on 26 December 2004, tremors lasting 5 to 10 minutes were felt in Phuket before giant waves rolled onto the shores of Phuket's Andaman coast on the western side of the island at 10.00 a.m., inundating the lower floors of beachfront hotels and resorts, homes and buildings along the entire coastline. Roads were truncated resulting in severe traffic congestion. Sapan Hin in the city centre was under 1 ­ 2 metres of water.

Areas affected stretched from Bang Tao Beach, Kamala Beach, Patong Beach, Kata Beach, Karon Beach, Nai Harn Beach and Phuket Fantasea. Governor of Phuket, Udomsak Asvarangkul, declared a state of emergency as giant waves pounded the western coast of the island in succession resulting in the sudden inundation of coastal areas, injuries and loss of life, capsized boats and vessels lost at sea. On the eastern coast of Phuket island, giant waves washed over Rassada Pier as passengers were waiting to board ferries for Phi Phi Island.
