A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Xayaboury province in the Laos PDR yesterday, 21 Nov.
There were about 70 recorded aftershocks as reported by the Thai Meteorological Department Friday after the 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Xayaboury province in the Laos PDR yesterday.
Chalerm Phrakiat district of Thailand’s northern province of Nan was hit the most in Thailand with 65 damaged houses.
Most of the houses in Tambon Khun Nan have cracked walls as a result of the strong tremor.
Meanwhile, in Bangkok, people in high-rise buildings also felt the buildings swaying but no damage was reported.
The department said that by the time the shock wave reached Bangkok, 650km away, it had reduced to an intensity of 2 but, because of the soft soil in Bangkok, the intensity rose again to 4 and the tremor was felt by people living in high-rise buildings.
In a report from Thai PBS World, the department will continue to keep a close watch for aftershocks for at least the next 4 weeks.
