Several buildings in several districts of Thailand’s northern province of Nan, including a 500-year old ubosot, or ordination hall, were damaged by a strong earthquake centred in the Laos PDR this morning.

 

Cracks appeared on several buildings, including a border patrol police school and teacher lodgings in Chalerm Phrakiat district, the Government Savings Bank office in Tha Wang Pa district and the ubosot of Wat Phra That Khao Noi, which is located on a hilltop in Tambon Chaisathan of Muang district.

 

Local officials said that cracks appeared in the foundations of the ubosot and the temple is waiting for fine arts officials to arrive to assess the damage, adding that the temple suffered serious damage in a quake 57 years ago.

I felt the earthquake in Phayao at 0405. I was up earlier and at the computer upstairs. The house rocked and the door to the balcony rattled. Did not fell the 2nd one.Not as bad as the one in 2014 but still a little scary.

It was significant, but not large.  I have been through a number of them, including a big one at Lake Tahoe, but this was my first time up in a high rise.

It was a very slight bump at 4am here near Mae Lao, I was awake talking to my sister who's daughter's family was evacuated from the Australian bushfires and barely noticed it.

Missed the 7am completely.
