I would think there is more chance of being struck down by the proverbial bus (or tuk-tuk on Phuket) than being wiped out by another tsunami. At least one gets audible warnings of an approaching tsunami, but with the bus (tuk-tuk) you get no warning.

Interesting in its research and history content, but hey, even I predicted another tsunami, I am as sure of this as I am as sure that the sun will rise tomorrow, I can, with spending any time or money, predict there will be another earthquake. I understand why people believe there should be warnings about tsunamis, but why not also earthquakes, the possibility of Indian rocket boosters falling from the sky. If we look at history all of us and maybe our kids and their kids could all have grown old and died before the next tsunami, with the passing of time the 2004 tsunami will fade into history along with all warnings, just like the sign in the photo above.

The evacuation route sign at the entrance to Sirinart Park in Layan, (on Soi 2) points the way southeast along route 4018 which is at sea level for about 3 kilometers, whereas it should point north, where the land rises appreciably within 200 meters.

To bad the scientists cannot predict earthquakes or tsunamis. There will be another tsunami for sure but for today let's hope that this will occur in the far future. Nevertheless people living in those areas should get regular drills so they know how to react if it happens again.

This scientist says its a case of when not if when waiting for the next drowning in front of the karon stadium..... this scientist predicts at least another 1 or 2 before 2014
