Laos quake no effect on Thai dams
I thought I left â€˜Earthquakesâ€™ when I left California â€“ but not so. Even Chiang Mai can suffer from them, although not as often. Last year we did have a quake in Laos that I did feel in Chiang Mai and just yesterday there was another, but not felt here. Hereâ€™s the Bangkok Post story on it. I need to look up the history of quakes in the region, but I do know that in the past Chiang Mai did have a major earthquake which actually changed the flow and directions of the Ping River â€“ pretty severe. And we are probably due for another any time now. Maybe the Laosâ€™s ones are just the precursor.
