You need to resize the images to below 300Kb to post them (as you did above).

The image is only 217 KB.
And even images resized a lot smaller get the error.
It only happens with all images from my camera.

Email one to info@bangsaphanguide.com and will try from here - maybe another issue (eg. if the phone is Apple the images will not be in a standard format and will need converting).

Sadly there is one casualty as far as I know.
A 5 year old girl has drowned near her home.

Thanks for the advice. 1000 pix still didn't work but 999 did.
Here are some more pictures taken on January 10 and 11.

Action star ‘Tony Jaa’ helps clean up flood-hit Ban Krut
Phanom “Tony Jaa" Yeerum, star of Thai and Hollywood action movies, on Wednesday joined hundreds of residents, shop owners, officials and tourists in cleaning up the debris left behind at flood-hit Ban Krut community in Bang Saphan district.

Tambon Ban Krut municipality mayor Thongchai Phetsakulthong launched the “Big Cleaning Day’’ project, which drew more than 500 people from all walks of life.

The aim is to restore the marine ecology of Ban Krut beach and repair the damaged landscape of the coastal community. Many houses, resorts, restaurants and roads were also damaged and left in a mess.

Jaa said he was promoting a movie in another country during the flooding in Bang Saphan district. He was shocked to learn that Ban Krut beach, his favourite holiday place, had suffered severely from the floods.

“I like to holiday at Ban Krut beach because of its beautiful natural setting and tranquility. Whenever I go to make a movie in another country I encourage the team, particularly those from Hollywood, to shoot a film at Ban Krut beach community in Bang Saphan district. I want the community to attract worldwide attraction,’' the actor said.

He joined in collecting garbage along about 5 kilometres of the beach, left there by the draining floodwater.
