Heavy Storms Displace More than a Thousand Families in Northeast Thailand

Northeast Thailand –

Strong winds during Songkran have damaged the homes of more than 1,700 families in the northeast of Thailand.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, or DDPM, reports that from April 15th to April 17th there were storms with strong winds that hit many provinces in the northeast which are Amnat Charoen, Surin, Chaiyaphum, Sakon Nakhon, Ubon Ratchathani, Udon Thani, Roi-et and Kalasin.

More than 30 districts with about 1,700 families have been affected from the storm as their houses were damaged and many were displaced temporarily.

The southern parts of Thailand have also been affected from the storm on Sunday (April 16th). At least four bodies were found and six people have been rescued after many local fishing boats capsized in Nakhon Si Thammarat during recent heavy storms.
