Thai Rath reported severe damage to property and power lines after a powerful storm accompanied by hail stones hit large swathes of north eastern Thailand at the weekend.

 

Top billing on a YouTube posted video was staff and customers at a gas station in Mukhdahan running from the storm.

 

 

It damaged the roof and cars.

 

Dozens of other homes were hit all across Isaan with Roi-Et and Chaiyaphum featured in the video.

 

Some resembled pictures of people hit by hurricanes. 

 

Later workers were busy cutting down trees that had fallen on power lines causing powercuts in much of the region.

Sadly incidents like this always hit hardest on those that can't afford it, as they for example already hardly can afford proper roofs, nor accident insurance.

Looks nasty, hopefully no major injuries.

 

Nothing here in Chiang Mai just smog.

Only a little light rain where we live North of Udon. The reading is 0.4 mm since pm yesterday

I'm sure it had nothing to do with the construction quality on those buildings shown.
