Storm over Udon Thani

Yesterday, the 17th of March, there was a violent thunderstorm in the evening. Unusually strong winds caused damage to several buildings in the city. A hall that was still under construction at the intersection of the ring road on the DIY outlet "Global House" fell apart completely. At Aek Udon hospital a huge sign was knocked down by the wind and then fell to a nearby building. The electric supply was cut in some areas of the city due to collapsed pylons. Fortunately we haven't heard of any injured people.

This was the scene at the entrance of the hospital before the storm knocked down the sign.

And this is the house that stopped the sign after it fell.
