I've just finished my "Interview with the Viking expert of Thailand".Then came quake and Tsunami . Probably ,these may cause the extinction of Nepenthes Viking .Local man in Phang-Nga I am contacting says Vikings might be swept into the ocean because they grow in area only 2 acres of savanna-like plainland at sea level. No one dare going out to explore. One of the experts in Thailand believes this Island is the only place where Vikings grow , or at least the best original Vikings grow.
Massive waves triggered by the largest earthquake to shake the planet in more than 40 years have wiped out coastal areas across parts of Asia, killing more than 11,000 people . Most of the Islands in Andaman sea included the remote small Island where Vikings grow were heavily damanged. Some were completely gone.
It is the fourth-largest earthquake since such measurements began in 1899, according to the NEIC, tying with a 1952 quake in Kamchatka, Russia.
Vikings Island is in Adaman sea - The sea famous to all tourists by its beautiful beaches located on coastal area of Phuket and Phang - Nga provinces.One witness said Phuket's famed Laguna Beach resort area is "completely gone." The area provided 40 percent of Thailand's $10 billion annual income from tourism. Among the missing scuba divers who had been exploring
the Emerald Cave off Phuket's coast was the grandchild of King Bhumiphol and Queen Sirikit.
