Wow, just saw this write up â€“ Monster Storm Brings Fear â€“ 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 â€“ one local witness said â€œshe saw a big gust of wind blowing on the road across from her house, it whirled a big tree downâ€ If that isnâ€™t a tornado, I donâ€™t know what is. The report doesnâ€™t mention if there was damage to Khao Kheow Open Zoo â€“ I posted my photographs of the area that several weeks ago. sounds wicked. Another effect that must be from global warming. Itâ€™s been the hottest year here in Pattaya for a long long time and we are expecting some very large storms this season.
