    4.1-magnitude quake hits Chiang Mai

    4.1-maginutde quake hits Chiang Mai
    October 11, 2013

    A quake measuring 4.1 magnitude on Richter scale hit Chiang Mai's Phrao district early Friday, causing widespread panic among local villagers.

    It was the biggest tremor ever in the district.

    "The shake was so powerful that we felt like a big truck crashed into our building," Phra Khru Preechapiwat said. He is the abbot of Wat Thung Luang and the chair of Phrao District Rescue Centre.

    Local residents were seen grouping together to talk about the latest quake.

    Which was quickly followed by the topic of somtam, and the farang who just moved into the neighbourhood with his dark wife. Probably blamed it on a ghost already.

    We had some feng shui people in last week measuring distances between plant pots and the like; glad we did now as Bangkok has been spared.
