Wow, just saw this write up – Monster Storm Brings Fear – in Pattaya Daily News May 5th, Must have been a tornado.
We had a lot of rain, wind and thunder that day and night here in Jomtien but nothing that wild. It was really black toward the Sriracha area but I did not think it was that bad – one local witness said “she saw a big gust of wind blowing on the road across from her house, it whirled a big tree down” If that isn’t a tornado, I don’t know what is. The report doesn’t mention if there was damage to Khao Kheow Open Zoo – I posted my photographs of the area that several weeks ago. sounds wicked. Another effect that must be from global warming. It’s been the hottest year here in Pattaya for a long long time and we are expecting some very large storms this season.
