Monsoon storm raging in Andaman sea early in the morning July 8 pushed on the rocks of Hey island, southern Phuket, Thailand, Malaysian general cargo vessel Sinaran Andaman, which was en route to Myanmar from Penang, Malaysia. No news yet on 10 crew but according to available information, crew has to be evacuated, because vessel is taking heavy pounding from 4 meter swell. Rescue is hampered by rough weather. At least one local fishing vessel sank being caught in storm in the area, one local cargo vessel went missing, at least 12 people missing.
Judging from photo (Phuket Wan News http://phuketwan.com/tourism/cargo-ship-hits-rocks-phuket-six-missing-distress-call-fishing-boat-22790/) Sinaran Andaman may be considered a total loss.
